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.

It goes without saying that the cause is worthy, but what really stands out about KBC is the commitment those working with the charity have to making a difference every single day. It is not just about an event, a fundraiser or exposure. It is evident that everything they do on a daily basis is to further the mission and work towards the day when every child wins their battle.

As a volunteer at KBC, I have seen how everyone works together to inform the Central Florida community about these children and their families going through unfortunate events in their lives. Im so glad the Central Florida area has an organization like KBC to give these families hope and faith by working together as a community and showing them that the community does care. My favorite volunteering project was the "My Room Program" to cheer up the little ones and make their transplant process a lot smoother by decorating their room to their preference like Kiera and her "Frozen" themed room!

I've volunteered for many non-profit organizations and KBC is one of the greatest. The CEO is not only inspiring, but she educates others on awareness on childhood cancer, and other life threatening diseases and taught me the struggles and many challenges that are faced throughout the treatment process for not only the child with the diagnosis, but for the families as well. This organization also directly impacts children like, giving them support throughout the treatment process, and even after the treatment process.

As a volunteer, I have seen first hand how much everyone at KBC truly cares about what they are doing and who they are helping. It is a group of the most genuine people and I am so happy I was able to get involved! I am so glad the Orlando area has an awesome organization like Kids Beating Cancer!

I started supporting this organization as a volunteer. I learned about this organization from a friend and being a cancer survivor myself, I wanted to give back. The more I got involved and began to understand how they help the children with cancer and other diseases, I dropped all my other charity work and give my time to this organization. Their focus on helping the children and their families is amazing.
