We recieved help from KRM when we needed it the most. We were away from home for a month for my son, Cathan's radiation treatments and so stressed and depressed. We had the nicest visit from one of the workers, who brought boxes filled with blankets, books, toys, and money for Cathan and his little sister. We were in desperate need of assistance and got it right when we needed it. I wish I could rememeber the name of the woman that came by, because she sure brightened our day. She watched the kids open up their boxes and get so excited about having something special that day. We very much appreciate the support we have had!

I am forever grateful for what KRM has done for me and my children. I am a single mom of three kids who's two year old son has Leukemia. They sent us a great hope chest with such things as blankets and DVD's for all three of my kids. My older two children are teenagers and are just going with the flow of what happens with their little brother. I was appreciative that they were included as they are dealing with this just like my son and I. We held a benefit dinner for my son and KRM could not attend but in their absence they sent us raffle prizes and literature. It was great. KRM continually reaches out to me and lets me know they are thinking about me and my family. I feel like if ever I needed anything they would help me locate the resources or point me in the right direction. Cancer is scary and it affects everyone and I cant say enough that I am thankful for connection with KRM as we now have a lifetime connection and that makes dealing with this cancer thing so much easier. Love all the staff there. They are great people with kind hearts.

KRM is a wonderful charity. In July 2007, my then 15-month-old daughter, Gabriella Grace Anderson, was diagnosed with a pediatric brain tumor and began treatment at UCSF. During her short stay, we received financial and in-kind support from KRM, including books, blankets, gas cards and some much-needed cash to assist us as my husband and then 3-year-old son had to commute a 6 hour round trip to come be with Gabby and I in the hospital. Gabby died in October 2007, but KRM continues to provide emotional support to our family. We received a condolence package which included a memory box made by Keaton's grandfather, several books on how to cope with grief and loss, and personal note from Robyn Raphael. It has meant so much more than I can explain to know that KRM exists and continues to honor children and families, by providing financial and intangible supports during the battle with cancer.

Please see my review. I would also add that in that first shocking part of treatment, when my world suddenly collapsed around me and I felt like our family was alone in the world, KRM helped to remind us that there are still people who care for others and strive to make a difference for children and families struggling with cancer.

I would want more financial support from businesses, because the work that they do is so critical for families!

I have been in business in Roseville since 1971; this City has been very good to me and my family. As a local business person I've sat on many boards and committees; always trying to give back as much as I received from our community. In 2005 I was diagnosed with a very rare blood disease called Amyloidosis; most likely brought on by exposure to Agent Orange while I was an infantryman during the Vietnam war. I was treated for this challenge at Boston University Medical Center. In order to defeat the Amyloidosis, I had an autologous stem cell transplant and high dose chemotherapy (two days of chemotherapy equal to what you would normally receive in six months). Fortunate for me, I was in incredible shape, being a long distance runner and weight lifter because I lost almost 70 pounds in six weeks of treatment. After my recovery I wanted to give some time to an organization that I could easily relate with. An employee in my office introduced me to the Keaton Raphael Memorial. Once I saw the struggle that the brave little people, who through no fault of their own, go through and their never say no positive attitude, I was sure this was the right organization to give of my time. I can honestly say that being a small part of this wonderful organization has enriched my life beyond my expectations when I first became a member. I relate to the children, but could never say that I come close to the bravery they exhibit. Their determination and fighting attitude and their spirit has been an inspiration. Every story I read, every picture I see, brings tears to my eyes. I can only hope and pray that we as a nation find a way to harness and destroy this dreadful problem.

KRM is a non-profit that stays focused on making a difference every day. Helping kids with cancer and their families make it through the day and find hope in the future. Every nickle is well spent here.

I knew what to say. These families are so strong because of their experience. I am humbled by their walk.

One thing I'd also say is that...

God bless Robyn and Kyle Raphael for caring enough to stick to it.

The Keaton Raphael Memorial is an amazing non-profit. They have helped over 600 kids with cancer and their families. They have raised over 1 million dollars for continued research since their conception. They truly bless the community and help around 200 families a year with financial assistance, emotional support, education, and awareness.
