The Fight With Flash Foundation
The Fight With Flash Foundation was created to honor the life and spirit of Austin “Flash” Schroeder. Austin’s life-long positive energy, zest for life, and “Win The Day” attitude continued --- and even flourished --- during his illness. His steady resolve amidst adversity continues to inspire thousands of people in the Iowa City area and well beyond. Austin’s story will continue to motivate others to “Win The Day.”
The Mission of the Fight With Flash Foundation is to serve children, adolescents, and young adults, as well as their families, when faced with a cancer diagnosis.
The Fight With Flash Foundation will:
1. Raise up our superhero, Austin “Flash” Schroeder, by continuing to tell his story.
2. Raise awareness of the need for ongoing research towards the prevention and treatment of cancer in children, adolescents, and young adults.
3. Raise the spirits of those afflicted by helping with spiritual, financial,
or physical needs.
4. Raise funds that will be directed towards medical research.
The Fight With Flash Foundation will work to financially support the development of the new AYA Cancer specialty center at The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. We need your help, and together we will WIN THE DAY!
The Fight With Flash Foundation is managed by volunteer board members and no donated funds will be retained by individual board members. The Fight With Flash Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your donation is tax deductible as allowed by law.
