The Landon Vargas Foundation

In our efforts to honor our precious Landon, his foundation will strive to carry out his legacy by focusing on two aspects that were at his core. First, his love of his family and second, his ability to flash that radiant, contagious smile in the mist of everything that he was facing.

Fact #1: Every 3 Minutes family somewhere in the world hears the devastating news that their chid has cancer.

Fact #2: After a childhood cancer diagnosis, it is a race against TIME to find a treatment aiming to attack aggressive fast growing tumors that metastasize quickly.

Fact #3: Our world today is is a world geared toward busyiness and distractions, which is pulling us from quality TIME connecting with people we truly care about.

We at the Landon Vargas Foundation aim to provide smiles (smiles are proven to boost moods and bring a mindset of positivity), we also aim to foster connections between the people we love and care about most and we strive to bring awareness to childhood cancer.

This Past month of June, Landon would have graduated from 8th grade. Landon’s absence is apparent always but on monumental moments like this the ache is even more profound. With that being said, we are so grateful for Landon’s teachers and classmates and the way they remembered Landon on this special day. We know there are huge smiles beaming down from Heaven as Landon witnessed the kindness of his classmates. Along with collecting new games for us to bring to the child life oncology unit at DuPont Hospital; they included Landon’s siblings in a special way during the ceremony. We can’t thank our St. Helena community enough for once again helping to carry us through a hard time. Thank you for always remembering Landon and for the love and kindness you shower our family with.
