Every day, organizations put together events to raise awareness and fundraisers to help children dealing with cancer. While the intention is noble, there is a tremendous gap between these events and the people as they often cater to the upper class of society. Milk Tyson, the self-proclaimed “big brother to the world” and founder of the nonprofit organization Fighting All Monsters, seeks to shake the status quo.
Before working in the nonprofit industry, Milk Tyson was thriving in the celebrity world as a celebrity medical marijuanna insider. He came into the nonprofit scene when he started a giveaway for Justin Bieber’s Believe movie premiere. Among those who joined was a young girl with cancer. Although Tyson wanted to bring her, he ultimately chose someone else. During the event, Tyson’s thoughts revolved around the girl with cancer, and he felt he should have brought her too. Later that night, he asked Bieber to record a video for the girl, paving the way for his journey into the world of childhood cancer.
Not long after, Fighting All Monsters or FAM was born, helping families with children dealing with life-threatening challenges. Since its creation, Milk Tyson and his team have taken the nonprofit sector by storm, supporting them physically, financially, and emotionally. FAM strives to fulfill children’s dreams, whether it’s through bill assistance, gift-giving, community building, or bereavement support for families.
Throughout their years in the battle against cancer, FAM has reached significant milestones. In 2020, they took a big step when rapper Diddy helped twelve kids. The organization was set to participate on The Ellen Show when the global pandemic struck, forcing Milk Tyson and his organization to restart. However, their momentum continued to swing in their favor as they held a retreat for mothers of children with cancer, medically complex conditions, or who had recently lost a child. Tyson had 60 moms from 30 states flown to Islamorada, Florida, free of charge. He provided them with six Waterfront mansions provided by Keys Ocean Views and pampered them. Additionally, they had a special lantern-release night called Letters to Heaven, where the mothers who lost their children wrote notes on Chinese lanterns and released them to the heavens.
Fighting All Monsters takes on its mission in a unique way compared to other nonprofits. Milk Tyson strives to make his organization accessible to the general public with complete transparency, human-to-human connection, and minimal bureaucracy. He is currently working to break the status quo of holding events that only serve to feed the egos of donors.
“FAM isn’t looking to host costly galas, entertain the same old circle of elite donors, or sit around in endless deliberations on which association or group we should join to feel good,” he shared, “FAM is appealing to donors who want to cut the red tape and get the donations directly to families.”
Having been in the nonprofit sector for many years, Milk Tyson believes that Fighting All Monsters can reach even greater heights as he hopes to turn FAM into the leading organization in the world.Learn more about Milk Tyson and Fighting All Monsters by visiting their official website.
