Our Inspiration

In November of 2009, 16-year old Anna Basso was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a bone and soft tissue cancer that primarily affects children and young adults. In an effort to heal her body and encourage her spirit, we established 1 Million 4 Anna. Family, friends, and complete strangers pledged to pray for Anna every day at 12:12 PM, and over a million prayers were said in her name. Though Anna’s fight lasted 18 months, her legacy will continue forever.

Anna’s giving spirit and her genuine caring for others will continue on in the 1 Million 4 Anna Foundation. Please join us as we fight Ewing’s Sarcoma and continue to float on.

Our Mission

Our mission is to eradicate Ewing’s Sarcoma.  We will remain vigilant to the needs of suffering adolescents and their families.  We will provide university scholarships for students who have battled, or continue to battle, the disease.  We will fund promising Ewing’s research. Our commitment is to empower young cancer survivors and warriors in varying stages of their journeys through inspiration, education, and eradication.


 It is our relentless aim to win the fight against Ewing’s Sarcoma today, tomorrow, and until it’s gone.

How To Help


Prayer has always been integral to the cause of the 1 Million 4 Anna Foundation. We got our start at www.1millionprayers.com, where we brought together thousands to pray for Anna every day at 12:12. With every prayer, we get stronger in our resolve to beat Ewing’s Sarcoma for good. Know that when you bow your head, you lift our spirits.



Throughout the year, the 1 Million 4 Anna Foundation hosts events and we’re always looking for volunteers to help plan, support and work at these events.
