My daughter and I started volunteering for Cookies For Kids Cancer in 2012. A friend of ours got us involved . We have hosted 3 to 5 bake sales each year since then. I am a cancer research nurse and I know how important it is to raise money for research . My daughter choose cookies for kids cancer because she wanted to help children. We feel this is an awesome organization and we are proud to be a part of it . Beth and Rachel.

Childhood cancer research is close to my heart. I have been impressed with what Cookies for Kids Cancer has been doing with the money they raise. So impressed that I decided to start fundraising for them. I was amazed by how easy it was and how supportive they are of their bake sale hosts. Thank you, Cookies for Kids Cancer, for all you do!

This amazing non profit, Cookies for Kids Cancer, helped me, a grieving mom whose 2 year old daughter,Easton, died from cancer, find my purpose during the most tragic period of my life. Meeting the passionate and welcoming people behind this cause and realizing that they were funding daring research for even the worst diagnosis made me realize that I needed to be involved. I have hosted bakesales and encouraged others to do so as well. I have also volunteered to help with their Charlotte event, joining their event committee and taking on the role as a good cookie ambassador! I have also formed lasting friendships! Cookies for Kids Cancer is not only a truly special non profit, but also community in their own right that supports the pediatric cancer community in ways that set them apart from the crowd!

Cookies for kids cancer is an amazing nonprofit! Childhood Cancer does not receive the funding it deserves. This organization was started by a parent who fully understood these unfair circumstances and wanted to take action. I have fundraised for this organization for my birthday for the past two years and it was the best decision I made. They made sure to have a representative contact me and ask if I needed any help and learn more about why I got involved with Cookies. They shared my page on their social media platforms, and made me feel great about using my birthday for a good cause. I highly recommend Cookies for Kids Cancer to anyone looking for a great organization to get involved in!

This amazing non-profit not only helps spread awareness for childhood cancer but raises money to help find less toxic therapies for our most precious cargo, our future, our children. We claim that children are the future, but when money is raised for cancer research, our children only get $.03. How is that enough to give hope to children? Cookies uses all of the donations for children research!! We love cookies for kids cancer and we are one of the lucky families that can say our child survived. Hopefully with the research that Cookies helps with, more families can say the same!!

Cookies for Kids' Cancer is a charity that is near and dear to our hearts. Personally knowing the Witt family and their battle with childhood cancer moved us to action 10 years ago. Our family is committed to raising funds for childhood cancer research. We host an annual Bake Sale at a local lacrosse tournament in town every year. We've rasied over $50,000 over the years. In addition we organize a pajama day at our elementary school. Both are great easy ways to involve not only our children but so many local children as well. Giving back is so important and even more important to instill in our children. CFKC is such a great way to do this! Children can make signs, sell products, and shout out the message! Who can resist cute kids doing GOOD?! LOVE LOVE LOVE Cookis for Kids' Cancer!

This is an incredible organization that enables everyone - from kids to adults - to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. It creates awareness in such a simple way -- a good old fashioned bake sale. Everyone has fun, and feels great about the difference they are making - whether they are baking cookies, selling cookies, or spreading the news about the organization. The concept is so contagious that it often inspires others who see it to want to do the same in their own environment. The founders of CFKC suffered the ultimate loss and now their organization inspires people all over the world to make a difference.

CFKC is an amazing organization that came into our lives at just the right time. My mother had recently passed away from cancer and my daughter was devastated. We saw how damaging cancer is to both the patient and their family. CFKC gave us a way to channel our energy in a positive, fun way while contributing to a great cause. There is so much support provided by the CFKC team that it's very easy to host a bake sale. It's a small organization which allows you to feel part of the team. After our first event we were hooked and continue to host annual bake sales. We are very grateful to CFKC and their awesome team!

CFKC is an incredibly well run organization. I have held several bake sales/events to raise money for them, and each time their team has been very helpful in assisting with the set up - sending me a bake sale kit with everything that is needed (packaging materials, balloons, signs, pamphlets, a self-addressed envelope to send in the donations). They also hold an amazing Chefs' for Kids Cancer gala every year. The gala starts with a cocktail hour combined with an art auction , followed by top chefs cooking a meal right in front of you, ending with a jar of custom cookies from various top pastry chefs in NYC. Almost everything, including the ingredients' , chefs' talent, even cooking appliances, are all donated, so almost the entirety of the proceeds are able to be donated to CFKC. It is sold out every year, and not only do they raise an impressive amount of money each year, it is also a fantastic time. CFKC has top pediatric oncologists from renown hospitals around the country on their board that are assisting them with which medical experiments to fund, then getting them fast-tracked so they can be put into use to help pediatric cancer patients as soon as possible. There are quite a few pediatric cancer orgs out there, but this one is not only thoughtful/mindful, it is also efficient, effective, and producing real results.

I found this charity not long after my son Levi was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma. I’m going on my third year of fundraising, and I’ve committed to becoming a Good Cookie Ambassador to try and raise as much awareness as possible for this amazing organization!

We just held our 7th annual bake sale this past weekend and raised $2,720!! We love this organization and the team that helps us to make our events a huge success! We look forward to these events because it helps us to bring our community together. The cookies team works tirelessly to help others organize events and provides them with the tools they need to make them a success. My girls get such enjoyment out of knowing that they're working hard to provide funding for pediatric cancer research, and I love that they're learning to appreciate each day, because some children don't get that opportunity. Our hearts are 100% with this organization and their mission!

I have had the opportunity to host a fund raiser and participate in 5k and 8k races to support Cookies for Kids Cancer. It's so rewarding to support such great cause. I fully support their mission and will continue to support them whether it be bake sales, races or other volunteer opportunities.

My son was diagnosed with cancer in 2007 and I have been actively involved with Cookies for Kids' Cancer since 2008. I have hosted several bake sales as well as other events such as spirit nights at local restaurants and a huge fundraiser at my local gym. In addition, I order cookies each Christmas as gifts. I am so thankful to Cookies for making it so easy to support pediatric cancer research funding and to all the good cookies out there helping!

Cookies for Kids' Cancer raises money for research and creates awareness for pediatric cancer. I am so thankful to have this organization to support because my 8 year old son is a cancer patient and I know that the bake sales we have hosted not only benefit him, but all the other children we have met during treatment and all those children who will enter this battle in the future. It also feels good to honor the lives of those child who have earned their wings and their families. Cookies for Kids' Cancer is making a difference!

I have been involved with Cookies for Kids' Cancer for almost five years for many reasons. First, I fully support CFKC's mission to put as much money as possible in the hands of researchers to beat pediatric cancer. CFKC donates an extremely high percentage of funds raised to researchers, which is wonderful!
When I got involved with Cookies for Kids' Cancer, they made me feel like I was part of their and checked in and cheered me on every step of the way. Being a part of this organization has added an important element to my life and made me think and act more philanthropically in all that I do. I will continue to raise funds for CFKC and join the fight until the fight has been won.

Being involved with CFKC has added so much meaning to my life. It has brought together community of people together that wouldn't have even known each other if it weren't for the events we hold. Raising money for CFKC has been an enriching experience that gives purpose and meaning to my free extra-curricular time. CFKC is an excellent organization to volunteer for. They are active participants in each of our fundraisers, easy to get a hold of, and very generous. They are open to share tips and advice and seem to really care about each fundraiser no matter how big or small the event.

I have had the opportunity to support and volunteer for Cookies for Kids' Cancer for about 5 years. My high school students feel privileged to raise funds for CFKC each year. They understand the connection of this great organization to Liam, the inspiration for CFKC. For the first time this year I have alumni asking to return and to work with us to raise funds! This is a nonprofit that dedicates energy, funds, education, and focus to eradicate Pediatric Cancer. I am honored to support their efforts.

It has been an honor & privilege to participate in fund raisers and events to support CFCK. From pre-school bake sales to running the Rutgers Unite half marathon & 8K on Team CFCK, the reward I receive from volunteering my time cannot be expressed adequately in words. CFCK is a wonderful organization, whose mission I fully support.

I have been an active supporter and volunteer on behalf of Cookies for Kids Cancer for about five years now and cannot say enough good things about the organization! Events are always fun bringing smiles and joy to everyone involved. The time put in never feels like effort because it's such a worthy cause and I know the money raised has a direct impact on the research to cure pediatric cancer. It's been exciting to see this charity grow and truly make a difference for so many children. Be A Good Cookie.

Cookies for Kids' Cancer continues to hold a special place in my heart and world. I am continually amazed at what a caring family that I am so lucky to be a part of. They not only help others they truly care about us all, and they treat us all as family. I am so proud to let everyone around me know that I am a good cookie and part of such a wonderful organization. They encourage all my ideas for raising the funds we need for pediatric cancer research and are always ready and willing to lend a helping hand and are very eager to hear all about my functions. One day at a time and we will win this battle! Our fierce angel Liam is always in my heart and in my thoughts and I am so glad we can keep doing good work in his and our other angels memory and also for our brave children who are still fighting. Everyday is a challenge that we will gladly take to make sure that our children have a fighting chance at this wonderful thing called life!

LOVE LIKE LIAM!!!

Cookies for Kids' Cancer touches my heart like no other. Although I was not fortunate enough to have children of my own, I love them all as if they were. I feel that our beautiful innocent children should never have to go through what these have and who are still going through. Cookies is such an inspiration for everyone and I plan to continue holding bake sales and other fundraising events for Cookies for as long as I breathe and hopefully one day we will have our cure, and our children will be able to live the beautiful life that they were meant to live. I cry just about everyday when I look at all our inspirations and know in my heart that some of them fought a hard battle and are no longer with us especially Liam the Brave. His memory will forever be in my heart and his story started it all for me and I am grateful to have been able to see his smiling face in pictures and read his story and pray for him daily. I pray daily for all of them and I always will.

Thank you Cookies for Kids' Cancer for letting me be a part of such a wonderful, loving, caring and giving family.

"LOVE LIKE LIAM"
