Our Mission

“Remembering those who have passed way too soon, while shining a light on those still fighting”

The Brightest Star in the Sky Espn Murphy Foundation is a non-profit organization created by Espn’s parents, Jill and Doug Murphy, who are determined to keep their little boy’s memory and spirit alive. After Espn’s passing, we were told by many people how much of an impact Espn had on the community, the world. We hope that we can continue to have an influence, through Espn’s memory, and shine a light on those who have helped us through his battle, as well as those still fighting…

Our mission includes:

  • Create awareness and support research to find cures for pediatric cancer, especially Diffused Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) which was Espn’s diagnosis.
  • Provide support to those who have helped Espn, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,  Ronald McDonald House Charities, and Make-A-Wish.
  • Provide support to other families who have also been inflicted by childhood cancer.
  • Remember Espn Denis Murphy.
