About the Strike 3 Foundation
The Strike 3 Foundation is a charitable agency that heightens awareness, mobilizes support, and raises funding for childhood cancer research.
Founded in 2008 by MLB pitcher Craig Breslow, the tenets of the Strike 3 Foundation had been in place for some time.
At age 14, Craig’s sister was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. More than fifteen years later, she lives an unrestricted life as a cancer survivor.
Unequivocally, this success story is attributed to advancements in pediatric oncology treatment and research funded largely through generous donations and charitable efforts.
The Strike 3 Foundation welcomes grant proposals by worthwhile individuals and research institutions. A committee has been established to evaluate these proposals. Please note, that given the volume of inquiries, it is impossible to accept all requests, however the Strike 3 Foundation ensures that all submissions will be evaluated without discrimination.
