Your generosity directly impacts the lives of Kansas children

When a child is diagnosed with an illness or injury, it can turn a family’s entire world upside down. We are here to alleviate some of the financial burden and offer emotional support to make life a little less stressful.

Reese's Story

Just One Of Many Amazing Testimonies

Reese is a sweet, sassy little girl who loves superheroes, princesses, and riding her four-wheeler outside. On September 7, 2017- the day before her fourth birthday – Reese was diagnosed with pre B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Even after chemotherapy, she had high-risk cytogenic markers associated with her leukemia.

Reese underwent a critical bone marrow transplant on March 7, 2018. It saved her life and Reese is now home and healthy and cancer free! During her medical journey, KansasChildren’s Foundation provided support for the whole family.

We support Kansas kids in many different ways

Kansas Children Need Your Support!

We only exist because of your generosity. Your financial support could drastically change, even save the life of a child!

The support we received from our friends, family, community and organizations like the Kansas Children’s Foundation really helped us through this trying time. The financial support alone was very helpful for us, but the events the Foundation funds are wonderful for helping Reese and our family through this. She loved the art therapy and music therapy programs. All of the support has helped her blossom into a social, fun-loving little girl despite facing cancer. The support was truly a light for us during a very dark time.
