Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We hope to help children in central Kansas and continue to grow to reach more children across the state. We hope to be able to provide gas cards to every family that is diagnosed to help offset the expense of travel in Kansas. We also hope to fund research that brings about better and less toxic treatments for our children.

We will continue to reach out to families as they are diagnosed to provide them with assistance. We will also continue to expand our reach with these families until we reach the entire state of Kansas. We will also work to expand our reseach dollars and find new and innovative research to fund.

We are able to reach many families through social media and word of mouth. We also work with the Children's hospital in Kansas to make sure families know about what we offer. We will also continue to focus our efforts on innovative research.

We have been able to help many families in Kansas financially. We have also been part of funding more than $8 million in pediatric brain cancer research. We are seeing new developments being made with this cancer and hope to see more treatment options in the near future.
