Teens Fight Too

At Teens Fight Too, our goal is to make sure that teens and their families have the support and tools they need to get through their journey. We want to make sure they feel heard, important, and loved.

Our Teens should not have to worry about what they wished they had in the hospital. We want them to focus on their fight and their healing.

About

IMG_3750.PNG

Here at Teens Fight Too, we are driven by a single mission - to do our part in making the world a better place for teens on life-altering journeys.

Our journey with Teens Fight Too began when our son, Talon, was diagnosed at 13 years old with stage 4 High-Risk Neuroblastoma. During his long, hard 4 year fight, Talon spent most of his time in the hospital.  We found out quickly that there was not much focus around teens to help them remain happy, occupied, and distracted from their pain. Talon needed age-appropriate distractions while fighting for his life and healing. 

To help Talon, we filled his room with his favorite sheets, brought in age-appropriate games, his favorite foods, an Amazon Fire TV Stick, an Ipad, and his Xbox.  We were blessed with the ability to provide all the things that made Talon happy,  but he became worried about the other teens who might not be as fortunate as he was.

 

 Talon was always so caring and thoughtful of others.  He started Teens Fight Too as a non-profit, with the desire of providing those same luxuries to other teens. 


Talon passed away in January of 2021, after fighting 4 long years. We decided to keep his wishes alive, as we know that is what he would have wanted.
Teens Fight Too is a wonderful way we can honor Talon's name and journey, and bless others, which in turn blesses us.

What We Do

At Teens Fight Too, our first and main goal is to supply every teen fighting for their lives with one of our care packages. Our second goal is to offer a space for the parents fighting for their children. We want to offer an outlet where parents can feel safe to ask questions and feel they are being heard. We want to help them navigate their time in the hospital and let them know their voice always matters. 

 

Each of our care packages will include an Amazon Fire TV Stick or Roku Streaming Stick, gift cards for Netflix, gift cards for Talon's favorite carry-out spots, a Doordash gift card, and a pillowcase (Talon loved having his personalized pillowcase).  We would also like to include a Starbucks gift card and gas gift cards for the parents!

Volunteer Opportunities

One Step at a Time

At Teens Fight Too, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. Along with our care package, we want to provide guidance and help for the Teens and their parents, if needed. 

 

We have been through the health care system and we are hopeful that we can help ease some of that burden.  Teenagers going through the hardest days of their lives is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment, we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
