This Star Won't Go Out is a non-profit foundation serving families with children diagnosed with life-threatening cancer. Caring for a seriously ill child creates tremendous stress for the family system. TSWGO’s goal is to help families through financial gifts given with no strings attached. These gifts can be used for medical expenses, items needed by the child with cancer, or personal expenses due to the financial strain of caring for a child with cancer.

Since its founding in 2011, TSWGO has given out more than 75 gifts totaling $125,000 to help families suffering from financial hardship related to childhood cancer. What is exciting is that our funding is extremely grassroots, initiated and organized by caring individuals and groups of young people from all around the globe who want to make a difference for kids. They purchase bracelets and t-shirts that promote TSWGO, and hold fabulously creative fundraisers—they’ve hosted all-night rocking-chair-a-thons, an 84-mile walk around an English wall, carnivals, bake sales, battle-of-the-bands, head-shavings, and even a 5,000-piece domino art project!

TSWGO was established in memory of 16-year old Esther Earl, an avid Nerdfighter and passionate Harry Potter fan. Her online friends and causes met many of the social and emotional needs in her life, hampered as she was by her progressing thyroid cancer. Yet Esther lived life fully, getting involved in social justice issues, loving her friends, her family and cats, and always remembering to be awesome.


“If there’s one legacy Esther leaves us, it’s the legacy of welcome.

We’re all invited to the party. Doesn’t matter who you are, you’re loved.

You have meaning, you have value.” - Wayne Earl
