As both a non-profit professional and advisory board member of KBC, plus a former critical care nurse I feel uniquely qualified to provide the highest recommendation for Kids Beating Cancer. I met the founder, Margaret Guedes over 10 years ago as she passionately described the goals, and missionn of KBC. I asked if she was a nurse or a mother of a child with cancer, and she told me she was the mother of a child who had died of cancer. I attend a luncheon in spring 2012 and learned that Margaret's dream and the long term goal of having children treated in Orlando was about to become a reality with the opening of the Kids Beating Cancer transplant unit at Florida Hospital. After her 20 years of hard work, and watching and learning from Margaret for the past 10 years, I nominated Margaret for the Lifetime Achievement Award for the Central Florida Association of Fundraising Professionals and she won this prestigious award. Margaret will be awarded this honor in November in Orlando in front of 500 community leaders.

As a non-profit professional and RN, I have had to pleasureto know and work with Margaret Guedes and Kids Beating Cancer for nine years. The moment I met Margaret and learned about her son John and why she formed Kids Beating Cancer, I knew she would impact many lives with her courage and strength. This organization was born out of her love for son but her desire to save lives and help other families dealing with leukemia and other cancers is what keeps the organization going strong. I have seen children and their families who received a bone marrow transplant that would not have been possilble without Kids Beating Cancer and the dedicated work of Margaret Guedes in honor of John.

The Great!
