CKc was established to not only assist families who are dealing with the challenges of childhood cancer, but also fund research which will bring us to a cure. Having experienced friends and family work through navigating a new reality following a cancer diagnosis, CKc is filling a critical gap that many families experience. Having the ability to be a part of this important work is truly an honor, and I am looking forward to working with the Board and leadership team as we advance the work of raising awareness for this cause.
