Will Power Foundation
Our mission is to carry the message of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to young people everywhere and to inspire the next generation of leaders in the fight to end pediatric cancer.
William Glowacki was diagnosed with brain cancer in February 2007 at the age of ten. He was successfully treated at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Upon resuming his normal life that fall he threw himself into sports and music, his two passions. He lived a happy and passionate life through middle school and high school playing football, baseball, basketball, tennis, and most prominently, golf. As a senior at Queen Anne’s County High School in Centreville, MD he co-captained the team that qualified for the Maryland State Golf Championship Tournament. After graduating from QACHS in 2014, Will began his collegiate studies at Towson University. In January 2015, Will was diagnosed with a recurring brain tumor and received additional treatment at St. Jude. The treatment was successful enough to allow him to return to Towson U. in spring 2016, but that March he received a third brain cancer diagnosis. Will fought valiantly for another 15 months seeking treatment and consultation at St. Jude, NIH in Washington, DC, Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Hospital, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC. On June 27, 2017 Will passed away. He was and is an inspiration to everyone who knew and loved him. He lived fearlessly, selflessly, and with great joy. We undertake these endeavors in his name.
Why St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital?
Finding Cures. Saving Children.
St. Jude is unlike any other children’s hospital.
They are leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago.
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
