In 2012, Casey Doolin, daughter of Jim and Ping Doolin, was diagnosed with leukemia during her senior year at St. Joseph’s University. She underwent extensive treatments at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) lasting more than a year. In 2013, Casey lost her battle at age 23. Knowing their daugther’s love of children, community service, and helping those less fortunate, they established the Casey Doolin Foundation in 2014, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, as a tribute in her memory.



The Casey Doolin Foundation (CDF) was established in 2014 to honor Casey’s love of children, dedication to service, and helping those in need. These efforts are principally delivered through our Casey's Companions program.


Casey’s Companions

A partnership with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) which began in 2014 with the FBI office in Philadelphia. Our volunteers assist with meals, transportation, financial and spiritual support, hospital navigation and other logistical needs while a child and their family are in the city for treatment. Casey’s Companions has grown with chapters in FBI offices in New York City (2017) and Baltimore (2018). Additional chapters are under development in other FBI offices.
