About The Pablove Foundation

Our Mission

The mission of The Pablove Foundation is to fund pediatric cancer research and advances in treatment, educate and empower cancer families, and improve the quality of life for children living with cancer through hospital play, music and arts programs.

The Pablove Foundation is named after Pablo Thrailkill Castelaz, the son of Jo Ann Thrailkill and Jeff Castelaz and the little brother of Grady Gallagher. Pablo was six years old when he lost his valiant yearlong battle with bilateral Wilms Tumor, a rare form of childhood cancer. Imbued with his spirit and inspired by his strength, we fight on in order to amplify one simple message: kids get cancer too.

Why Childhood Cancer?

Childhood cancer remains the most deadly disease among children and teens, killing more kids each year than AIDS, asthma, diabetes, and cystic fibrosis combined. Survivors are faced with long-term problems like organ and fertility damage, psychosocial issues, and even secondary cancers.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, an entire community begins a cancer journey. Parents, siblings, classmates, and friends are all affected by the emotional, financial, and systemic toll childhood cancer leaves in its wake.

Pediatric cancer is a complex problem. That is why The Pablove Foundation approaches the challenge through our unique three-pronged mission – funding innovative research, educating families, and helping kids with cancer just be kids.
