The BoStrong Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. It was founded by the Oliver and Jones families, with the help of Paula Silverman, after the Olivers son (and Jones' future son-in-law), Bo Oliver, lost his battle with Ewings Sarcoma. Established in 2017, the BoStrong Foundation provides resources to help young adults with cancer explore holistic treatment options.

Our Mission

  • Educating young adult cancer patients and their caregivers about holistic treatment options and therapies.

  • Instilling confidence in those on the cancer journey that it's "OK" to take control of their treatment, ask questions and explore options.
