About Mighty Moms Foundation

Mighty Moms Foundation, a charitable foundation established by Dr. John Burnett of Fresno, California, recognizes the intense financial burdens and emotional stresses single mothers must face as they undergo cancer treatments. The Mighty Moms Foundation endeavors to provide financial assistance, along with other types of support, in order to aid these brave women as they struggle to nurture and maintain their families during this extremely difficult time.

The goal of Mighty Moms Foundation is to identify and provide assistance to single mothers undergoing cancer treatment who demonstrate significant financial needs relative to supporting their dependent children and maintaining their families.

Potential recipients will be identified and referred to the Mighty Moms Foundation by their treating physicians. A needs assessment will be conducted by the Mighty Moms Review Committee. Financial awards will be granted based on determined financial need and circumstances without prejudicial discrimination.
