Elizabeth Adams - President
I was introduced to this small but incredible organization in 2017 as a sophomore in high school. Participating in fundraisers and awarding scholarships with K4K has expanded my outlook and brought me to the realization that cancer patients are some of the most brave, interesting, and inspiring people among us. One particularly impactful applicant’s essay conveyed how she found comfort through encouragement from others, which I hope to provide through K4K. I hold so much admiration for the kids who not only fight against cancer, but who also step up and ask for help when they need it. I strive to support them by working to expand this organization and the number of individuals we benefit.

Through reading the application essays and fundraising, I have realized how brave and inspiring cancer patients and survivors truly are. Knowing the pain that every applicant has gone through and seeing the positive attitudes and perseverance they show, encourages me to try to do anything to help them in attaining their goal of higher education. I hope to be able to continue this organization’s success and grow it in order to help more individuals attain their goals of higher education.
Sarah Dickerson - Secretary
My name is Sarah Dickerson, and I joined Kids 4 Kids as a sophomore in the fall of 2017. I was excited to have an opportunity to help cancer survivors across the country and even the world afford to go to college and receive the education they might not have been able to have. Sometimes we tend to take advantage of the circumstances and opportunities we are given, and being able to help give those opportunities to others warms my heart. During the scholarship application process, I truly enjoy reading the stories of some of the bravest people I know; I’m filled with admiration for them for surviving the hardships they went through. I am looking forward to continuing work with Kids 4 Kids and am excited about the future of the organization.
Kate Ayers - Treasurer
When I joined K4K in the fall of 2018, I had no idea how important it would become to me. Not only have I learned a lot about how nonprofit organizations function, but also about how these childhood cancer survivors are some of the most passionate, motivated, and intentional people I have ever had the pleasure of discovering. These kids, their lives having been jeopardized at one point, tend to know exactly what they want to do with their careers. I’m confident that our scholarship recipients have made immeasurable differences and will continue to do so.

K4K is about more than just raising money; it is a way of reaching out to children and helping them overcome their many challenges. Human connection keeps us together during times of great difficulty which is why children with cancer need to know that they are not alone, that they are cared for, loved, and can still hope for a brighter future. Becoming part of this organization has given me an opportunity to help cancer survivors turn their hopes and dreams into a reality. I am incredibly honored and excited to be a part of this impactful organization.
