We deliver customized player kits that connect children across the globe as they face their common opponent – childhood cancer. Through resources and online communities, families are able to connect despite physical barriers. At the end of the day, our goal is for those affected by cancer to know that they are not alone.
When a child is facing a tough opponent like cancer, we are dedicated to providing a sense of Comfort, Community, and Connections that contribute to the strength they need to keep fighting. Each day a child is sponsored is another opportunity for Cancer Kickers to help make a teammate feel special.
