 Joey’s Wings Foundation

Joey’s Wings Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit charity, was established in 2014 in the memory of Joey Xu, who was taken from us by childhood cancer on Nov. 26, 2014. Joey was diagnosed with xp11.2 translocation renal cell carcinoma, a rare but aggressive cancer, which has no standard treatment protocol. Our mission is to fund research that focuses on kidney cancers affecting children and young adults, raise awareness and provide support to families affected by childhood cancer. Our foundation is supported by an active Board of Directors operating solely on a volunteer basis. 100% of all donations made is used towards research and treatment options, patients care and advocacy for developing less toxic therapies to treat kidney cancer among children and young adults.
