  5. Cole’s Cats- Thanks to your generosity, we were able to support the sponsorship and adoptions of over 13 shelter animals in Cole’s honor.  When the animals were adopted, they were able to learn a little about Cole and his love for all animals, but especially cats!
  6. Cole’s Birthday of Caring- a special highlight of the year was Cole’s birthday- we were humbled by your notes, pictures and texts telling our family what you were able to do in honor of Cole on his birthday.  Thank you for being a blessing in your community and honoring Cole!
  7. We are excited to start our family assistance program in 2017 to help families going through their kids’ cancer journey.
  8. We are excited to announce our first funding in Q1 2017 for kids’ cancer research!

THANK YOU for your unwavering support of the Batcole Foundation- and we are excited for 2017 and the opportunities to help raise more funding for non-toxic kids cancer therapies and research.  As an approved 501c3 non-profit, please consider making a tax deductible donation, where 100% of your donation goes to impact a special child undergoing cancer therapy!  Give HOPE to a child fighting cancer today!
