About Us

Diagnosed with cancer at age 13, Lance was granted a Make-A-Wish®. Impacted by his own experience, and with three (3) years of treatment still ahead of him, he asked that his wish go to help him start a charity with the purpose of helping kids – and their families – better cope with life-threatening diagnoses by providing distraction tools, technologies, advocacy and family support.

Programs include:

  • Distraction tools and technology
  • Awareness and advocacy
  • Patient and family support


Provide support for pediatric cancer patients, and other kids with life-threatening diagnoses, and their families when they need a ‘lift.’


Lift Brigade®, is a designated 501(c)(3) public charity, IRS identification number 81-2236478.

Donations made to Lift Brigade® are tax deductible under IRC Section 170.
