The Richard D. Frisbee III Foundation is a charity committed to raising funds for research and treatment of cancers that affect children and adults. Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death from illness in children. While great advances have occurred in the last few decades, there is much to be done to find answers to these difficult illnesses. The Frisbee Foundation provides critical support to researchers to study leukemia, immune system disorders, cancerous tumors and blood related illnesses. They also provide assistance to improve the quality-of-life of cancer patients and their families.
The Richard D. Frisbee III Foundation was started in memory of a 15 year old boy who courageously fought a battle with leukemia. He was the first child to receive a bone marrow transplant in Connecticut. His 5 year old sister, Meg, was the donor. Rich relapsed and lost his battle to the disease. He asked his mother, Christine, not to let this happen to others. The Foundation was started in 1991. The Frisbee Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) charity dedicated to research, education and direct patient care.
