Childhood cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the United States.  More children die from cancer each year than AIDS, asthma, diabetes, and cystic fibrosis combined!  That’s why it’s our number-one priority to wipe it out. Every year, 12,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer. That’s one in every 330 kids. Of those children, 60% will suffer long-term side effects of the disease. And 30% will die.

The Friends for Life (FFL) Guild was formed in 2006 to help fund pediatric cancer research at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Our signature event is the annual sale of  hand-blown glass ornaments and votives.  Each year, an ambassador is selected to design a hand-blown glass ornament and votive.  Each ornament and votive is as unique as each child and their childhood cancer experience.  We are an all volunteer guild that keeps administrative costs very low.  We strive to donate 50% of the sale price straight to Seattle Children’s Hospital Research.

We believe that the “Hope is in the Research.”
