Addi’s Faith Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending childhood cancer. Our purpose is to raise funds for research in pediatric brain tumors as well as provide financial assistance to families struggling to care for a child with cancer. We believe that there is a cure out there and together we can find it.

Addison Faith Bender arrived from Heaven on Jan. 2, 2006 and returned there on Dec. 4, 2007.  She graced this Earth for such a short while, yet accomplished so much.  This beautiful angel, who smiled all the time and loved Baby Einstein, was able to make our world a better place simply by being herself.  To know her was to love her.  Addison was diagnosed with an Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor (AT/RT for short) in June of 2007.  She endured 13 surgeries, heavy dose chemotherapy sessions, proton radiation, and countless sticks, pricks and “yucky” stuff.  Addison did everything that was asked of her with a strength and courage that was amazing to see.  Everyone who knew her will forever remember her and strive to be just like this 1 year old angel.
