About

The Schwartz Family along with the BFF Executive Board and all of our amazing volunteers are so honored and driven to help families get through this unimaginable time in their lives.

 

Cancer is sadly a word we hear all too often. What makes it even worse is that it’s all too common too many children. We all know someone who has battled this disease and know the toll it takes on their family. After losing a wonderful man to the disease, we decided to do everything we could to help improve the lives of kids during and after cancer treatments along with their families.

Please help Be the Fight Foundation (BFF) give kids and their families the best fight possible!

 

Mission

Raise funds to help kids and their families fight cancer by giving them the support that is needed during and after treatment.

By working with the kids, their families and the facilities where they receive treatment, we can provide them with invaluable support so they can give their best fight possible against cancer

Vision

We want nothing more than to ease burdens, give them something to smile about and share more love than they ever thought possible.

THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE LEGEND

Bruce (Beau) Schwartz 1948-2014

When you ask someone who their hero is they usually say someone famous but in our family, it's Beau. He was a man that filled the shoes of husband, father, grandfather, and friend to the fullest. 

He took the time to stay connected to everyone, stood up for what he believed in and worked hard his whole life. Cancer took him from us but the disease can't take the love he gave and the memories we hold dear to our hearts. We are proud to honor him with everything we do and we know he is always there cheering us on!

Financials

In two short years, we have raised over $51,000 for the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation and have started our own 501(c)(3) foundation to continue our work. We believe that everyone can make a difference in someone else's life no matter how small the help may seem.
