NEWS & PRESS ROOM

About SebastianStrong Foundation:

Based in Miami, Florida, SebastianStrong Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) charity that honors the life of Sebastian “Sebs” Ortiz (2000-2016) by increasing awareness of childhood cancer and raising money to fund research for less toxic, more targeted childhood cancer cures. This mission was born from the example of STRENGTH set forth by Sebs during his courageous 14-month battle with rhabdomyosarcoma. Since his passing, the Foundation bearing his name has bolstered the support of donors from across the country. SebastianStrong has awarded several grants to date for pediatric cancer research. Additionally, in order to further its mission of increasing awareness, SebastianStrong provides scholarships to talented high school seniors pursuing STEM careers.
