PUTTING KIDS WITH CANCER FIRST

JOIN US IN

 Our Mission 

        Cancer Kids First (CKF) aims to help pediatric cancer patients experience a better childhood. We supply patients with toy and book donations, cards, coloring pages, care packages, and more. We strive to normalize the hospital environment, inspire patients to keep fighting, and spark some joy within their lives through our many programs.
