Helping Kansas City area families battle childhood cancer with dignity and peace of mind
Founded in 2009 by neighbors and friends in Lenexa, Supporting Kids Foundation is dedicated to helping Kansas City area families battling childhood cancer. We want to make sure parents remain focused on being by their child's side during treatment and not worrying about bills that pile up at home.
WHAT WE DO
No one budgets for cancer. SKF raises money to help KC area families with day to day needs while their child is battling cancer.
SKF remodeled and supplies the parent room on 4-Henson at Children's Mercy Hospital. This is critical in bringing a sense of normalcy and home to families during their stays at CMH.
Nearly 200 KC area families will be struck with the news each year that their child has cancer. Through SKF, our community is learning about the challenges that face these families and how they can help.
HOW WE DO IT
SKF helps KC area families with everyday household expenses while their child is battling cancer. Here is a quick overview of how we do it.
Entertaining for the Greater Good
A core premise of SKF has been to entertain the community with fun events while raising money and awareness for families battling childhood cancer.
Collaborating for the Community
SKF uniquely brings corporate sponsors and their employees within an arms length of the families they are supporting. Building a closer relationship between businesses and their local community.
SKF was built on the generosity of individuals wanting to donate money, time and talents. These amazing individuals have made the SKF mission a reality.
