The Sydney Harper Foundation was created in 2018 with a vision of a world where children and families impacted by Wilms Disease and other forms of pediatric cancer are given the hope and opportunity to overcome the challenges of the disease so that they can enjoy the lifelong health and wellness they deserve.
It is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create and fund programs that provide education and awareness of pediatric cancer; increase knowledge around early prevention, detection and treatment of Wilms Disease and other forms of pediatric cancer; provide support, resources and a sense of community to those impacted.
Sydney Harper was a spunky three year old girl who died unexpectedly in February 2018 from complications of Wilms Disease, a rare form of pediatric kidney cancer that often strikes without any symptoms.
Sydney’s mother Brittany says that “We miss our Sydney Harper horribly. Sydney loved life, her family, bobcats, bacon and the color pink. The one thing we can do, in her memory, is to create this foundation, to ensure that she gave her life for a powerful purpose. I will make it my life’s job, through my precious daughter’s memory, to help raise awareness and help other children and their families fight this horrible disease.”
