About the Marty Lyons Foundation...
Within one week in March 1982, Marty Lyons, a defensive lineman for the New York Jets for 12 years, was faced with three life-altering challenges: as a son – the death of his father; as a Big Brother – the loss of Keith to leukemia and as a father – the birth of his first son.
With the encouragement and support of family and friends, in December of 1982 Marty established a foundation dedicated to granting wishes to children (ages 3 to 17) with life-threatening or terminal illnesses. The philosophy behind his mission was that by promoting hope and inspiration in sick children, they will find the courage and the strength to fight their illness. What was perceived as impossible could become possible.
In 38 years, the Marty Lyons Foundation has granted over 7,900 wishes through their wish programs, and are unique in that they will consider a second wish for children who are experiencing further complications due to their illnesses. The MLF is proud to have 10 chapters covering 13 states.
