Kids 4 Kids With Cancer was started by four friends who wanted to make a difference. We considered the idea of “kids” assisting other “kids” and thus, the name Kids 4 Kids was born. The four friends noticed that many childhood cancer survivors lack the necessities to succeed in school. We imagined we could help childhood cancer survivors obtain school funding and tools otherwise affordable if not for the costly treatment of childhood cancer. This became our main mission: educational support for childhood cancer survivors.
Since our inception in September of 2010 we have raised money to support childhood cancer survivors. K4K has held various fundraisers and received many donations that contributed to our treasury. From pumpkin carving parties to a Rock n’ Roll Spring Fling, we have shown how a group of friends really CAN make a difference. We have already granted a number of scholarships from the money we have raised, providing educational support for cancer survivors in search of higher education.
Our vision is to share our support of and commitment to education by helping to fund educational aid nationally. With a website and commitment from many communities, Kids 4 Kids has grown to a multi-city charity in Texas in less than five years. With further participation, chapters in other states would be spectacular!
