About the Foundation

The Adam Faulk Tanksley Foundation is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization established to make a positive impact in the lives of children and their families affected by pediatric cancer. The Foundation is named in honor of Adam Tanksley, who was diagnosed at the age of 3 with Stage IV Anaplastic Wilms’ Tumor, a rare childhood kidney cancer with a 20% chance for survival.

Today, after multiple surgeries, more than 120 rounds of chemotherapy and 18 days of radiation at Levine Children’s Hospital, Adam’s cancer is in remission.

Adam’s mental, physical and spiritual strength throughout his treatment serves as an inspiration for everyone involved with Adam Faulk Tanksley Foundation.

We plan events, fundraisers and speaking engagements throughout the year to generate awareness and raise funds to fight pediatric cancer, while providing uplifting, fun experiences for patients and their families affected by the disease. We are also founding members of the Carolinas Kids Cancer Research Coalition, a collection of nonprofit organizations dedicated to supporting pediatric cancer research and services at Levine Children’s Hospital.

Together we can Chomp Childhood Cancer!
