Sometimes superheroes reside in the hearts of small children fighting big battles.”

We have been working hard at The Joseph Ahmed Foundation, continuing on our mission to fund pediatric cancer research, and raising public awareness about Ewing's Sarcoma. Every single day that we fight, and with single every dollar we raise through our campaign efforts brings us closer to providing the resources necessary for the research and development of ground-breaking treatments that can change the lifes of pediatric cancer patients and their families.
The Joseph Ahmed Foundation (JAF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was founded in 2016 by the family of Joseph Ahmed, who lost his courageous battle with Ewing’s Sarcoma eight months after his diagnosis on September 1, 2014, at the age of 16. Through their tragic loss and grief, Joseph’s loved ones established the Joseph Ahmed Foundation.
In loving memory of Joseph Ahmed.
