Fulfilling Our Mission
Due to the generosity of our dedicated Smiles For Sophie Forever supporters, we began fulfilling our mission in late 2008.

Through December 2021, we have awarded:
$1,144,253 in family grants
$107,000 to The Cure Starts Now to be used for pediatric brain cancer research; $50,000 to ChadTough for specific DIPG study
$233,797 to St Jude Children's Research Hospital    
In April 2016, we partnered with Jenna's Rainbow Foundation in awarding our family grants. To date, Jenna's Rainbow Foundation has helped us support families of children with brain cancer by giving $283,500. Jenna's Rainbow Foundation is a non-profit organization named after Jenna Kamil, who also lost her battle to a brain stem tumor in 1999 at the age of seven. The rainbow and helping other families who have a child with brain cancer is also very near and dear to Jenna's Rainbow Foundation, which is why they reached out to us to create a partnership in fulfilling family grants. Per our partnership, Jenna's Rainbow Foundation will provide funds to cover half of our approved grants each month. We are blessed and honored to partner with Jenna's Rainbow Foundation which will help us extend our family grants program and because we know that together we can make a difference!

The family grants have been given to children from 38 states across the U.S.

As always, we could not have helped families nor helped fund research to find a cure without your support, so we thank you!
