We first learned about KBC when our daughter was going through chemo in 2005. She participated in many of their activities. KBC gives families the support and guidance they need during a very difficult time . Their priority is to make sure families are well served . They also helped us to create wonderful memories even though it was a challenging journey.
Because of the positive impact KBC had on our daughter, she now volunteers with them when she is able. We love KBC and their staff. They are a crucial part of this community.

Kids Beating Cancer is an amazing non-profit. Everyone puts their heart and soul into the foundation to help raise funds to "fund the cure". We have several programs that help the patients and their families. My room is special because the children can choose a theme to have their rooms decorated in for the duration of their stay in the hospital. Research is the best hope to find a cure and this foundation provides that.

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.

Kids Beating Cancer is amazing. When my son was hospitalized for one month for his bone marrow transplant they decorated his room with the theme of his choice. It made the room feel so much more like home. They also provided us with daily bucks for the cafeteria which really helped us out monetarily. Purchasing food three times a day is a major hardship for a family and Kids Beating Cancer took that burden away. They have a wonderful Christmas and Easter Party for the children every year. The children really enjoy being with other kids at these events that understand what the are going through. Thank you to Kids Beating Cancer for all that you do. You have been a blessing to our family.

Kids Beating Cancer is the BEST charity in the SE! Their mission is very transparent and you can see it in place at the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center located at Florida Hospital for Children. They not only help the children get into the transplant center financially, but they also provide meals for the parents and they also decorate each child's room in the theme of their choice - MY ROOM - so that they feel comfortable checking into the hospital. I highly recommend this charity!

I have been interning with Kids Beating Cancer for about 3 months and I must say I love how much work this organization puts towards their kids. Nothing but hard work and time goes into this organization and I truly see the dedication in every single member of this organization. From a 5k run in Mount Dora to the Hats and Heroes Ball, this organization works hard to raise money for the children in need.
