The Batcole Foundation is a public 501(c)3 non-profit, that is committed to raising funds for research to develop novel, superior therapies for neuroblastoma and other pediatric cancers. Together with our foundation board, specialized pediatric cancer treatment centers and physicians, our goal is to identify clinical therapies which have the most promising clinical blueprints for success.
The Batcole Foundation was inspired by Cole Winnefeld, who bravely fought neuroblastoma for six and a half years, and died on July 29, 2015. He loved superhero's and the Batcole symbol was drawn on a napkin by a family friend and quickly became Cole’s identity. A little boy’s smirk and childhood innocence, behind the mask of a superhero as he defied the odds with his cancer, is the cornerstone of our foundation’s logo.
