Dedicated to Our Little Warriors
Kids Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, founded in 2001 whose mission is to provide hope and support to local children and families battling childhood cancer and/or blood disorders. We accomplish this by providing compassionate, easily accessible, supportive care services.
The Kids Cancer Foundation provides hope and support to our young patients and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer their childhood days quickly change to be filled with chemo and endless doctor and hospital visits. Life not only changes for the child but for the entire family.
Doctors and Nurses work hard to cure the cancer but families need more than just medical help to get through this stressful and fearful time in their lives. This is where Kids Cancer Foundation steps in to fill this void.
