Meet our Founders

What started out as a simple dream has blossomed into a beautiful reality. Twelve years ago, we envisioned a way of providing direct support to children and families who have been affected by pediatric cancer in our local community. Words cannot begin to elaborate on the amount of respect, gratitude, and sincere appreciation we have for each and every one of you. As we come together, united in our mission, we hope for nothing more than to all hold hands, to walk together, and to find a cure for childhood cancer.
