James is a courageous 10 year old cancer survivor. At the age of just one he was diagnosed with a rare genetic neurological disease called Neurofibromatosis (NF). NF causes both benign and malignant tumors. At the age of two, James developed an exceedingly rare malignant tumor and underwent surgery and a year of Chemotherapy at the world renowned Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York City.
Inspired by James we have created The 9th Floor Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. The “9th floor” is the actual Pediatric floor at MSKCC where we spent countless hours surrounded by incredible people who we believe work miracles. Our Foundation has partnered with The Children’s Tumor Foundation and Memorial Sloan Kettering Pediatric Day Hospital. Our donations to these two incredible Institutions will directly support Neurofibromatosis scientific research and help to alleviate cancer treatment costs for those families who are unable to afford the life saving medical treatment they so desperately need.
