Raising funds and awareness for pediatric brain cancer research.
Michael Gustafson was nearing his 15th birthday when we recorded this video in a restaurant parking lot. By this point, Michael already knew he wasn’t going to beat brain cancer for himself.
But he could beat it for someone else.
“I’m going to give my life up in order to see if we can find a cure,” Michael says in this video. It was his idea to be a tissue donor. Michael called it his “master plan.”
The Swifty Foundation was created by Michael and his family to continue that plan. The greatest challenge in defeating pediatric brain cancer is a lack of tissue for researchers to study. Without tissue they cannot perform their research, leaving children with little or no options for new treatments.
Swifty is dedicated to meeting that challenge. And we need your help.
