The Calvin Preston Foundation is a non profit organization, we dedicate ourselves to assisting underprivileged families with children battling cancer. Our goal is to help by providing basic needs such as groceries, toys, and gifts during the holiday season.
The Calvin Preston Foundation was founded in honor of Calvin Preston Velazquez. Calvin was diagnosed with Leukemia (ALL) at the age of six. What happened next in eleven months was a blur or hospitalizations, countless procedures and a bone marrow transplant. Sadly Calvin's body was exhausted and at the tender age of seven, passed away in his mother's arms in March 2014 surrounded by love.
We know from experience the trauma and pain pediatric oncology patients and their families face which is why we are vested in helping these children in need. Together we are creating smiles and changing the world; one child at a time.
