A single act of kindness can make the biggest difference in the lives of a family.

“Braylon once asked, “Will I be here next year?” I was devestated,I did not know what to do. It was a lonely, helpless point of time in our lives until people heard about our story. The community came together to help us with gift cards, prepared meals, and tickets to entertainment events. I realized the importance of having help during our family’s fight. We want to help families by helping to relieve the burden associated with having a child fighting various forms of pediatric cancer.

 Thank you for making this all possible!” ~Mr. Jesse Beam

Our Mission

The mission of the Bring It 4 Braylon Foundation is to help alleviate the burden associated with pediatric cancer by providing comprehensive support to families and individuals who are fighting the disease. Founded on Coach Braylon Beam’s philosophy, “Be Brave. Be Positive. Have the Heart,” together we can overcome all challenges we will face.

About Braylon

Braylon Beam, a brain cancer patient who captured the nation’s hearts with his Ellen DeGeneres Show appearance and dancing-as-therapy videos promoting his #JustKeepDancing campaign. On June 9, 2015, facilitated by the Make-A-Wish foundation, the fervent Panthers fan signed a one-day contract to coach the team during Fan Fest.

In front of 50,000 fans, Braylon led the team through drills, called plays, and at the end of practice, proceeded to have a dance off with the team. Braylon continues to dance through his chemo sessions and remains positive during his fight.

He wants for every person who is battling a form of pediatric cancer to know that we are here to help any way possible to make their life better.

What We Do

Bring it 4 Braylon provides support based on the needs identified by referrals at the St. Jude Clinic at Novant Health of Charlotte. Each individual case is different, depending on the families’ needs. The Child Life specialist, doctor, and social worker speak to the families to identify any need. At their request, we provide any support within our means.

Bring it 4 Braylon has provided flights to Memphis for treatments, care packages, rent/mortgage payments, and utility costs. Additionally, Bring it 4 Braylon has had the opportunity to send families on weekend getaways. These getaways provide families a break away from the daily grind associated with cancer treatments.

We exist to help families by any means necessary. We offer a reprieve for families who need to focus on their child.
