Noah’s Light Foundation

Noah’s Light Foundation was founded by Dennis and Amber Larkin as they were going through the process of treating their son Noah’s medulloblastoma, a highly malignant primary brain tumor. After numerous months of researching, meetings and observations, they came to several realizations, one being that not enough awareness nor money was going to finding a cure for these children. They wanted to not only help tomorrow’s children, but today’s.


Their mission is fo find a cure for pediatric brain cancer by supporting visionary doctors in pediatric oncology, funding new research in the field, raising awareness of our cause, and enriching the lives of the brave children struggling with this disease.
