The Boom Foundation
Who we are
The Boom Foundation was set up in memory of Philip Wilson who lost his battle to sarcoma cancer on 8 March 2013. Our aim is to help fill the gaps in the support that he received, that his fiancee, friends and family recognised during his battle. Sarcomas are rare cancers that develop in the supporting or connective tissues of the body such as muscle, bone, nerves, cartilage, blood vessels and fat. The Boom Foundation aims to raise public awareness and funds, of which 50% will go towards support initiatives in Northern Ireland including a new sarcoma support group for patients and families and financial grants for individuals and families. The other 50% will go to Sarcoma UK to support its nationally-focused work to improve standards of treatment and care for patients in the UK and to fund vital research.
