What is a Baller?

We call our recipients “Ballers” instead of patients. A Baller refers to someone who has style, skill and is at the top of their game. Our Ballers are incredibly resilient and courageous and have a conquer-cancer mentality.

What We Do

Baller Dream Foundation provides emotional and financial support through four primary programs. 

Dream Gifts & Experiences- we provide once-in-a-lifetime trips, celebrity and sports experiences, major gifts and more to our cancer warriors. 

In-Hospital Programming- from crafts & activities with in-patient Ballers to stocking the hospital’s birthday supplies or providing highly requested items to help make their days in treatment a little brighter. 

Financial Assistance- offering everything from gas and grocery cards, to rental support and stop-gap bill payment to help our families keep the lights on (literally!)

Community Events- we provide fun events that are free for our Ballers and their families, giving them the chance to connect with others who understand the difficulties they are facing.
