UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J. – An Upper Saddle River boy whose mom died of cancer helped raise $90,000 for rare cancer research and those battling the disease.

At just 6 years old, Ethan Sandlofer, now 10, created E’s Battle Buddies – Kids Fighting Cancer, under the guidance of his father, Jason, in honor of his late mother Gaby.

This week, the charity presented the $90,000 donation to Hackensack Meridian Health John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center.

In May, E's Battle Buddies hosted a fundraiser at Lifetime Athletic Bergen County in Montvale. The kids-only event provided activities, such as indoor cycling and obstacle runs, while raising money and awareness for lifesaving rare cancer research, and teaching kids the importance of giving back.
