The Swifty Foundation was founded to celebrate the life of Michael Gustafson, who died at age 15 from medullablastoma. Michael started the foundation before his death so “No other child would have to go through what he did.” Michael wanted to be a scientist, and donated his tissue to researchers to help find a cure. Swifty’s mission is to promote tissue donation, fund pediatric cancer research, and raise awareness through social media campaigns and events. 100% of all donations go straight to research, and no expenses are paid with Swifty Foundation funds. Michael’s parents pay all foundation expenses.
