A Kid Again is where illness stops, and adventure begins!


Tom Amschwand created the vision for ASCF shortly before his death at age 30. Following his eighteen-month battle with sarcoma and after the loss of his mother, Kathryn, who also had this rare disease. Tom shared his dream to be able to provide free housing for cancer patients (including those with sarcoma) and their families. 

​ASCF was the first-ever non-profit to focus equal attention on sarcoma research, sarcoma awareness and tangible support for sarcoma patients and their families. A Shelter for Cancer Families provides stability, shelter and support for families seeking cancer care in the Texas Medical Center. Eligible applicants must live further than 50 miles from the Texas Medical Center.

Abby's Carts of Courage

Abby's Carts of Courage gifts children with cancer a new wagon to help them maneuver through their cancer journey. Often, cancer and its treatment leave patients fatigued and weak. While baby strollers are a great solution, they have a weight limit of 55 pounds making it unsafe for children above that to use. Filled with items to help keep their mind off their diagnosis and refuel their spirits, these gifts are a true blessing to both the child and their caregivers. Not only does a wagon provide much needed support for a child fighting cancer, but also for their family and caregivers.
