A Letter From the Founder...

Thank you for visiting The For a Day Foundation, home to unique programs for pediatric cancer patients.  We all know the feeling of a "just-because" gift or special visit, especially when we're sick or going through a tough time.  That's the concept of FADF - giving a little pick-me-up to kids in treatment for cancer.  Taking care of ourselves reaches beyond treating and preventing our illnesses.  Addressing our psychological needs affects our physical well-being, too. 

FADF is more than just play time. It is part of a total package towards long-term wellness.

We believe transparency is one of the ways we can gain your trust as a supporter.  View our 990 filings from the very beginning.

If you are looking for Queen for a Day, that is us, too. For our 10 year anniversary, we changed our operating name to The For a Day Foundation to reflect our growth. Queen for a Day is still our flagship program and we are still a 501C3 under the IRS.
