Friends of Kids with Cancer is devoted to enriching the daily lives of children undergoing treatment for, and survivors of, cancer and blood-related diseases. Our mission is to be an advocate for these special kids providing them and their families with the educational, emotional, and recreational support needed as a result of the long hours of chemotherapy, illness and isolation.
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is recognized every September by childhood cancer organizations around the world. Friends of Kids encourages everyone to Go Gold during September in honor and in memory of kids with cancer!
