Addi’s Faith Foundation works with social workers from all over the country to provide financial assistance for families. We receive the most referrals, though, from three local Houston area hospitals which are in the Texas Medical Center.
The Texas Medical Center is the largest medical city in the world and there are over 106,000 employees that work there.
Texas Children’s Hospital – Cancer and Hematology Centers has 4 locations and sees patients from each of the 50 states and from 56 different countries. The four Texas locations are: Houston, Katy, The Woodlands, and McAllen. An average of 95 children are inpatient at TCH each day.
MD Anderson – Children’s Cancer Hospital has five main locations specifically for young people and their families. MD Anderson’s Research Building also houses the pediatric neuro-oncology lab that is dedicated to AFF’s namesake, Addison Faith Bender.

Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital prides itself in care that continues seamlessly into adulthood. Memorial Hermann works in collaboration with MD Anderson to offer new ways to diagnose childhood brain and spinal tumors.
Addi's Faith Foundation works hard to place itself in pathways of families and patient advocates in the Houston Medical Center. Our hope is to be supportive of families that are in childhood cancer treatment and to further enable brilliant researchers to improve childhood cancer treatments and ultimately end childhood cancer.
