Annual Appeal

In 2013, Michael Gustafson chose to donate his tissue for research after his death at age 15. He wanted his gift to help find a cure for childhood brain cancer. His gift along with the generous gifts of our donors throughout the past five years have rippled into the nationwide initiative, Gift from a Child.

See how the ripples have spread!

We need your support for these ripples to continue to grow. Every penny of your donation will be invested in Gift from a Child, and this year Swifty is investing $1.5 million in this initiative.

Children and families, just like Michael, want to take a final stand against their cancer by donating their postmortem tissue to empower research. Gift from a Child allows them to make that choice!


Campaign Goal: $300,000

Amount Raised: $148,699
