Faris Foundation

The Faris Foundation is inspired by the provocative and edifying words of Faris D. Virani. In his nine years of earthly life, he emboldened us with his shimmering light, his magical way of being, and his triumphant spirit. Faris’ bold words and remarkable approach to his journey with Ewing sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, are our call to action. We hold our work to his same high standards: to be bold, original, and transformative in all that we do.

Our work is focused in three key areas: childhood cancer research, creative arts programs at children’s cancer centers, and public engagement and awareness around childhood cancer. Faris’ own words define each of these areas.
