About Allie

Allie Cibulas was an outgoing and loving little girl who always had a smile on her face, a giggle in her voice, and a pretty bow in her hair. The middle of three sisters, Allie loved preschool, dancing, dress-up, and play dates with friends. 

Allie was only 4˝ years old when she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in February of 2001. She endured numerous surgeries and frightening cancer treatments, but Allie rarely cried or complained. Instead she bravely faced each new challenge and won the hearts of all that she met.

In September of 2001 Allie lost her battle with cancer. Because she was such an inspiration to those who knew her, the Allie’s Angels Foundation was created in her memory. It is our hope that through this foundation, her incredible spirit will be carried forward to help seriously ill children, to inspire others to perform charitable works, and to support the effort to cure the deadliest of all pediatric diseases - pediatric brain cancer.

Facts About Pediatric Brain Cancer

Brain cancer is the number one disease killer of children under the age of 20.  

The incidence of pediatric brain tumors has steadily increased over the past two decades at the alarming rate of 5-10% per year.

Almost half of all children with brain cancer will not survive more than 5 years and many will die within one year of diagnosis.

There is no known cause of childhood brain cancer. Most brain tumors occur for no apparent reason.

There has been far less progress in the development of effective treatments for brain tumors than for any other type of cancer.

 

About Our Logo

Allie loved to draw pictures of little girls with long eyelashes and long hair, always with a pretty bow. We took this beautiful self-portrait, and made it the centerpiece of the Allie’s Angels logo. Allie’s older sister, Megan, added a butterfly, wings and a halo, while Allie’s younger sister, Caroline, used her best handwriting to write ‘Angels’ next to Allie‘s signature. We dotted the ‘i’ with a heart created by Megan and Caroline together. We hope that when you look at our logo, you feel the innocence, hope, and love of a child.
