The inspiration for the foundation was a young man named “Cal,” the son of Tom and Tracy Sutter.
They lost their son to cancer in 2006.
“During his treatment,” the promotional piece says, “Cal always cared about others before himself. Cal’s kindness inspired Tom and Tracy to start a foundation that would grant wishes for kids fighting cancer and provide financial assistance to their families.”
