I was introduced to Kids Beating Cancer a few years ago by some friends. This is such an amazing charity that supports and helps children and families in need of financial assistance to help pay for medical bills, insurance co-pays and tests needed before Medicaid will pay their child's transplant.

Kids Beating Cancer assists the children and families during their biggest challenge in life. KBC helps with the crucial but often uncovered medical testing for bone marrow transplants. They are literally helping to save lives. But they also assist in quality of life issues, such as dance classes and hospital room decor. It is a hands on charity with which I am proud to have volunteered.
