For 120 years, Silent Unity has been a window into the hearts of people around the globe seeking prayer support. Literally millions of people have contacted Silent Unity for affirmative prayer. And there are countless extraordinary prayer stories of people's faith being uplifted, health renewed, relationships restored and prosperity realized.

Those who call, write or email are encouraged to use affirmative prayer, the same method of prayer Jesus taught when he said, “So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mark 11:24).

Silent Unity Today:
Currently, Silent Unity receives more than 3,700 calls a day. A staff of dedicated and well-trained prayer associates answer calls with a greeting familiar to many through the decades: “Silent Unity.How may we pray with you?”

Compassionate listening is followed by an invitation to focus on the presence and power of God within. Affirmative prayer is spoken, acknowledging God's constant good and envisioning its demonstration in the lives of those uplifted in prayer.

Children's Tumor Foundation:

About the Children's Tumor Foundation:
The Children's Tumor Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to finding effective treatments for the millions of people worldwide living with neurofibromatosis (NF), a term for three distinct disorders: NF1, NF2, and schwannomatosis.  NF causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body and can lead to blindness, bone abnormalities, cancer, deafness, disfigurement, learning disabilities, and excruciating and disabling pain. 
NF affects one in every 3,000 people, more than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Huntington’s disease combined.  The Children’s Tumor Foundation funds critical research into neurofibromatosis.  In addition to benefiting those who live with NF, this research is shedding new light on several forms of cancer, brain tumors, bone abnormalities, and learning disabilities, ultimately benefiting the broader community. 


Mission Statement:
The Children's Tumor Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) medical foundation, dedicated to improving the health and well being of individuals and families affected by the neurofibromatoses (NF).
The mission of The Children's Tumor Foundation is to:
• Encourage and support research and the development of treatments and cures for neurofibromatosis types 1 and 2, schwannomatosis, and related disorders (hereafter collectively referred to as "NF");
• Support persons with NF, their families, and caregivers by providing thorough, accurate, current, and readily accessible information;
• Assist in the development of clinical centers, best practices, and other patient support mechanisms (but not including direct medical care) to create better access to quality healthcare for affected individuals; and,
• Expand public awareness of NF to promote earlier and accurate diagnoses by the medical community, increase the non-affected population's understanding of the challenges facing people with NF, and encourage financial and other forms of support from public and private sources.
