About Friends of Kids with Cancer

Friends of Kids with Cancer was founded in 1992 by Jill Turec, a Developmental Specialist, along with Molly Henry and Susie Snowden, who were parents of children in treatment who witnessed their kids struggles and saw the need for diversions in their lives.

Friends of Kids with Cancer is unique:

  • The entire family unit benefits from our services
  • All money raised through events, grants and donations stays in the St. Louis Community
  • Focuses on the importance of these special kids and their families getting through TODAY
  • Fills in the gaps from treatment to make each child WHOLE again
