Amazing Organization. They do so much for the children and families that are dealing with cancer. They take a wholistic approach to how cancer affects the entire family, and care for the siblings, the parents, as well as the child suffering from cancer. They go above and beyond every day to make each child feel special. They remember birthdays, and take the time to tailor it to each child's special day. They provide help at home in the form of ipads, and computers, they provide tutoring for the children affected, as well as the siblings. There is nothing too big or too small for them to look into and care about, they truly give the kids everything and make Such a big difference.

We love them so much! They have helped us so much when we were going through such a tough time. When my daughter was down we'd take her there and she would become happy and excited in seconds. It's a blessed place who is welcoming to everyone. I dont know what I would have done without them. God bless them!

Kids Cancer Foundation helps a lot of kids & their families get through the worst crisis in a family's life! When they get the news that their child has cancer :-( They keep the child entertained by bringing them cool toys to the hospital & anything they want to eat! They help the parents by helping them pay bills since some of them have to quit work to take care of their sick child! Also they just give them a lot of support to cope with what is happening with their child! They also help the siblings cope with what is happening to their brother or sister! They have a lot of family fun things to do with the families to take their minds off the thing called Cancer :-)

An RN who was taking care of children with cancer had a dream of opening a place where these kids could come to be kids while going through their treatment. She also wanted to help their parents & family members be able to cope & make ends meet while their child & sibling fights cancer! Her dream finally came true a few years ago & now she has a place called Kids Cancer Foundation & has helped so many kids & their families make it through this terrible disease! Her & her staff do such amazing work with these kids & their families they deserve some help to keep her dream alive :-)

The Kid’s Cancer Foundation is a wonderful Community Outeach Support for the cause of supporting families touched by childhood cancers. I became connected with them from a liaison between Life.Church and the center. As soon as I heard this was happening I signed up to help anyway I could. You see I lost my beloved husband of 29 years to cancer so I have experienced the journey . I was his caretaker and after walking that difficult journey with him for three years , I could not even imagine that happening to children and the families affected. It broke my heart and i had to find out how I could help. I only volunteer , but I can tell from the times I spent there that this place is beautiful! The people that run it are selfless and loving, compassionate , informed and 100 per cent committed to this cause. There is not a day that I have ever felt anything there but love and unending support. I love this center and all the beautiful people that come there. I will continue to support them with my time and prayers as long as I am able to . In my opinion they are the real deal and they DO make a difference!

I have been privileged to be a volunteer with the Kids Cancer Foundation for several years. I have seen miracles happen when one of our young warriors cheats death and goes on to lead a full, enriched life. I have witnessed people strengthened by the tireless efforts of KCF's medically trained staff to counsel and assist them in navigating complex cancer treatments. KCF also offers various therapies (art, massage, psychological, pet, tutoring, etc) to ensure the well being not only the our patients, but additionally each family member. I have seen strangers come together and support each other at KCF family events because KCF was there when they needed love, advice and help during their child's illness. I am honored to be a small part of this great organization.

Kids Cancer Foundation helped us through the most difficult times during our daughter diagnosis. Always caring and willing to look for additional help. Our daughter was diagnosed on August 15, 2008 with a rare kind of leukemia (Biphenotypic Leukemia) We had to travel to Duke University Hospital for additional treatment. When we came back, she was still need treatment and KCF was always there to help us. It is a great organization!!! Michelle and Nicole are doing a phenomenal job!!! We admire their commitment with the little warriors and their families. May God continues blessing them.

I remember those days when our daughter was a patient at Palms West Hospital. it was a hard time, but thanks to the South Florida kids Cancer Foundation our journey was more easy to go through. All the members and volunteers always had a smile for us. We feel like we are a part of a big family, they made us feel in that way. They always give us the opportunity to reconnect with other families who went to the same path as us during the Halloween and Christmas celebration. THANK YOU for all your incredible work toward the little angels and their families. I am very grateful to have you in our way.

Amazing foundation!!! When my daughter was receiving chemotherapy and radiation her immune system was too low and I kept her at home or at the hospital and she only started participating in Kids Cancer Foundation activities after she was done with treatment. Now she is having so much fun and loves every time that she can go and enjoy with other kids like her... wish I started bringing her soon but I am glad now she is part of this incredible foundation. They really care for our kids and help a lot of families in different ways! ❤️❤️

I have always believed to help
People less fortunate. Kids with cancer is to some extent different. They help families and children get thru the ordeal of childhood cancer. They are a lifeline to educate and help parents get thru this terrible ordeal and provide counsel and financial help when needed. I can’t tell you how proud I am of Michele and her team in their selfless quest to help these families. She truly helps repair the world and it is said to save one life is to save the world THATS THE Kids cancer foundation. I am proud and humbled to be a part of same. Paul konigsberg

My son was diagnosed with kidney cancer just before he turned 4. Kids Cancer Foundation was instrumental in keeping both of our spirits up. They soon discovered his love of dinosaurs, art & Legos. From then on, each time he had a treatment, they had a toy for him, or a game to play, or an art project. There was always something to lift his spirits and keep him occupied for a couple hours. He came to associate his hospital visits with activities, and he never dreaded coming, for which I was so thankful. On the day of his last chemo, Kids Cancer Foundation threw him a little party, complete with cake and presents. They were always there with answers, an ear, a shoulder to cry on, or a morning coffee for mom during overnight stays. Kids Cancer Foundation helped us through the most difficult part of our lives, helping my son grown to the boy he is now, 9 years later. It is all so very appreciated.

We first met Michelle and Nicole at the Kids Cancer foundation in June 2016 when our two-year-old son Anthony was diagnosed with AML leukemia. They have continuously supported and helped our family through the last 3 1/2 years. I don’t know what we would have done without them. 11 support they show our family is priceless our children look forward to going to the Kids Cancer foundation they love the events that they hold for the kids. At the last event we went to my daughter received a kids Cancer Foundation shirt and all she could talk about was how she could not wait to wear it so everyone could see her kids Cancer Foundation shirt.

The Kids Cancer Foundation is a beacon of light for the kids and families who are dealt this devastating blow of a diagnosis. Help and support don't adequately portray what they do.
Financial assistance, help with navigating the medical maelstrom they are in, respite for kids and families at the Center are all part of the services they provide. I'm happy and proud to be part of the group of people who contribute to the efforts of making this fight a little easier.

My family would be lost without the Kids Cancer Foundation. They’ve been there since the day my daughter was diagnosed with Pre-B ALL and has never left our side. Having a child with cancer can be extremely lonely and scary - for the patient, parent and siblings. The KCF was there for us for every single moment, holding our hands and loving us like no one else could. This foundation saved us in more ways than one and we cannot show enough appreciation for them!

I am a volunteer for this fine organization, and can only say good things about the work they do and the impact they have on the families of the children who receive such devastating news. The small staff work tirelessly in making sure the families have the support and resources to navigate through this very difficult time. Giving financial help, assistance in bridging the gap with the complexities of the medical situations they encounter, and being a social respite for parents and kids, the Kids Cancer Foundation is a great resource and friend for the families. With free tutoring, play rooms, gathering room for parents, space for the very popular monthly Kids Night Out, the center is a hub for an assortment of activities. I could only wish that families would never need their services, but it is a comfort to know that such dedicated people are there when needed.

I'm a local business owner who has been involved as a donor to Kids Cancer Foundation for a few years. It wasn't until May 2018 when one of my employees children was diagnosed with leukemia. The very next day, before the dust even settled, Kids Cancer Foundation was at the hospital advocating for the family making sure services were in place. We're very grateful for the Foundation. The impact that they make in the lives of families that are struck with the unimaginable is incredible.

When our son 13 yr old Langley was DX with Hodgins Lymphoma his dad had left on military active duty one week before for 2 years.

Sitting in the ER getting admitted not prepared for what was ahead of us and in shock. Having his twin sister at home 1.5 hours away alone with no family or close friends where we live or able to come help. (New to area).

Additionally ,Langleys older brother Eric left for college for the first time 2 days prior and has a disability that sometimes requires my attention. I was not sure how or what to do.

Kids Cancer Foudation , Michelle O’Boyle showed up immediately to sit with me & his doctor assuring I understood his treatment plan.

Michelle & other volunteers bought handmade quilts making a cold hospital room less scary.
Games to keep him busy. When he could have outside food they arranged it.

One most important things was * A notebook for me to track all the medical data and keep records & bills.

Kelly Weiner ,Esq. came to school with me to assure he recieved a homebound education and let a difficult school system know his rights.

Now in remission about 9 months they help us get into oncology camps which are helping Langley understand he is not so different and aide with PTSD he’s developed.

They submitted us to Make A Wish.

They helped us get with another local group “Smiles” to get a laptop for school work.

Kids Cancer Foundation cares. They do not just walk the first mile with you and leave . They walk the second journey. They become family.

There is absolutely no way I could have done this alone? And if not for them we would have been just that completely alone.

It was the difference between tears and the smiles on our son in the photos attached.

(No other national cancer agency because he was a “child” offered us any support emotionally or otherwise.
Also because Langley is not a “research” study St. Judes turned us down.

** More people need to understand the huge role this agency plays for Florida children. )

Our 13 yr old son Langley was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in June. It came as a complete shock to our family and with his dad on active duty away from home.

We got a call Tuesday night I remember thinking it had to be a mistake? All his tests came back normal till now.

That Wednesday we were immediately admitted to Palms West .. we were not expecting this and totally unprepared , alone with no extended family.

You can imagine how fast everything happened and how hard it was for our son.

It was at this point Michelle came from the Childrens Cancer Foundation to welcome us.

Langley could not believe people he never met cared so much. The hospital room stark white was now transformed with 2 brightly colored quilts , a soft teddy bear and some toys to keep him busy. It changed the whole experience for us from one of shock to one of comfort.

He still has Cancer but maybe just a bit less scary to us all. We could never have gotten thru any of this without the continuing support provided by the Childrens Cancer Foundation.

Was exposed to this charity when working as a firefighter and they asked if we could come by with our firetrucks and deliver Santa during their holiday party. If you could of seen the faces on these kids your heart would of melted. The venue was at the fairgrounds and the inside of the pavilion was amazing. The decorations and activities not to mention all the gifts for the children were incredible. I found out that throughout the year KCF supports the children and families during hospital visits and keeping up with their studies at the center when they have to be semi isolated during some treatments. I have since retired and now volunteer whenever I can at the center or during their fundraising events. Michelle, Nicole and their staff are so dedicated to these kids and their recovery. If you're looking for a non profit to support this is one of them.

KCF was an instrumental part with our daughter's treatment. They were nurturing, consoling, and comforting during a very acute time in our lives. I never felt like a client and my daughter never felt like "another patient" with KCF. There was a bond and a connection that words can't describe. I am forever grateful for the love and support KCF gave us and our daughter.

Kids Cancer Foundation has helped my family in so many ways. They have come to the hospital when my son was having his infusions and genuinely seemed interested in health. They offered help with more than just his treatments. He was getting a treatment on his birthday and they had cake and presents for him at the hospital. They helped with making sure his hospital homebound was in place and working properly. They helped with getting back to school supplies when his was able to go back to school. KCF also gave my son and his brother some wonderful Christmas presents and have wonderful monthly meetings where the kids/patients can gather with other patients in a social setting out of the hospital. When they have gatherings they have gift cards for the families that can be used wherever you need to. I'm sure I'm probably leaving something out, as they do so much for so many people. Our family truly appreciates all that they do.

My 10 year old son battled bone cancer and was in treatment and therapy for 2 years. Kids Cancer Foundation made a really difficult time more tolerable and even fun with many distractions that made kids in treatment feel special and were able to participate in activities in healthy and safe environments. Not only did they have a lot of activities for families, they also assist struggling families and provide tutoring which is very appreciated and helpful since kids miss a lot of school while in treatment. Everyone affiliated with this Foundation is friendly, loving, supportive and very giving. For families that find themselves in this unfortunate, devastating position, this organization is a lifeline and we will be forever grateful for everything they did and continue to do for us. Many will find that Kids Cancer Foundation become part of your family and long after treatment concludes families want to give back for everything that they had provided to us in our time of need. Words can't express how wonderful this organization is for families with a child battling cancer.

I have had the pleasure the last 2 Christmases to be apart of the annual holiday breakfast. It has been my honor to spend time with the children and to see just how much time/effort the volunteers put into this Foundation. The Foundation makes sure that every child, every parent, every sibling and extended family members know that they are they for them. They put smiles on entire families with their hard word. They work very hard to have activities and functions for the kids & families to enjoy so a moment in time they can fell normal and for a moment in time their worries are put a side so they can have moment to smile and to be together.

I first became aware of Kids Cancer Foundation of SF when my daughter was in treatment for Stage IV Neuroblastoma. Although we lived in S. Florida at the time, we went to NYC for Danika's treatment. She was just 7 months old at diagnosis and the year that followed was an absolute whirlwind and a waking nightmare most can't imagine. I can't even recall if the foundation was fully up and running at the time I met Michelle, one of the founders, at a local hospital. Michelle gave me so much encouragement and hope for what the future would be like once we were past the initial treatment phase and more insight into what our "new normal" would be once we were back home. I valued that time I spent with Michelle so very much and the information I gleaned from our visit was super helpful. It was a few years later that I got back in touch with Michelle and the foundation to try to plug in to our local community however we could. We visited the office and attended a few KCFSF events, and with every interaction, I always came away with the feeling of love, encouragement, and so much HOPE for the future. Not just for Danika and our family - - but for all the families fighting and living with pediatric cancer and its devastating effects on the entire family unit. The services and support that KCFSF provides are so very important to the whole family. Pediatric cancer takes a tremendous amount out of any family - emotionally, physically, financially. The effects are long-lasting and far-reaching. To have an organization like Kids Cancer Foundation of S. Florida helps to sort of put some of what was taken back. I'm sure this takes a different form for each family since the effects will be different for everyone. The more services that can be provided can only help the healing and day-to-day living for each family affected.
Danika is not our only child and so I am especially aware of how a pediatric cancer diagnosis affects siblings. These kids spend far too much time in the background, feeling less important somehow while treatment and rehab takes center-stage, wondering how they fit in, and what their role is through it all. A very real "what about me?" mindset enters in as their accomplishments, hopes and dreams fade into the distance. That sort of emotional distress can be life-impacting and long-lasting. These siblings are loved on and included and supported in such a special and necessary way. From a sweet hug and stuffed animal to counseling services and everything in between. I only wish we had more opportunity to take advantage and participate in the different events where siblings could feel a part of it all. This is an amazing group of people who provide so much support - the ripple effect of which will be felt for years to come. Any donations and support and recognition they receive can only go to help what I am sad to say is far too many families who are living with the harsh realities of pediatric cancer. This foundation deserves so much respect and attention and as much funding as possible so they can continue to do what they do to serve families like mine. It may sound cliche', but these kids really are our future - - and foundations like KCFSF are a very necessary and integral part of that future. Thank you to all of the KCF of SF family - we love and miss you all! - Danielle S., mom to Danika, 9-yr NBIV Survivor, and family

Kids Cancer Foundation focuses 100% on this kid’s and family’s affected by cancer. Michelle and the entire team are tireless in their efforts. They provide countless activities both in and out of The Center. Most of which are to comfort the kids and show them and the families a sense of hope, love and interaction with the caring community. I’ve had the privilege to be involved for the last 4 years and I participate along with my best friends in every way possible. It is heart warming in every sense.

I is an opportunity for the families and the children to gather for a breakfast celebration filled with joy , crafts, dancing, laughing and presents. Oh yes, a visit and pictures with Santa.

It is an incredibly happy and emotional event and is the highlight of the years work and efforts on behalf of kids with cancer. The foundation provides support and assistance to many children and families as they fight their battles with cancer.

As a family of a child that was supported by the The South Florida Kids Cancer Foundation, I can not express enough gratitude to all the wonderful people who work to support children with cancer. If you think or have an idea of what it is like to have a child with cancer you know very little of the traumatic and life threatening challenges to your child faces. The South Florida Kids Cancer Foundation understands because the have Professionals working for them that have many years of experience working first hand with children with cancer.

This organization does an amazing job providing not only funds and treatment options for stricken families, but goes above and beyond in providing supplemental professional support (psychological exams, tutoring, mentorships), support for siblings and parents, extracurricular events for both kids and parents, and a structured program for helping families and patients recover successfully. Gas cards, food cards, birthday parties, pony rides, face painting, etc are just the beginning for the organizers. For such an important and honestly heart-breaking cause, these people do amazing work. I am a third party marketing company that does some work with them for free as one of my clients is a survivor of childhood cancer. Cant say enough about what I've seen and how they compare to other 501c-3s!

I have nothing but kinds words to say about the Kids Cancer Foundation. They are an amazing group of people that have loved on our family since they found our son at Palms West. Our son, Johnny 3, was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma at 11 months old. We were being treated at the hospital when Michelle appoached me with a bunch of goodies for Johnny and asked how she could help. Since then they have helped us with so much. From linking us with other organizations to help with some of financial strain of having a child in the hospital, gas cards, putting together Thanksgiving meals, so I didn't have to worry about it, to helping my older girls, 7 and 10 with communicating how they feel with a therapist, to tutoring. And that's not even mentioning ALL the fun stuff my kids get to do, which was so important while we going through the hardest time of our lives, as a family. This non profit foundation has become family to us. They really are the best at loving on families that are going through the harest times in their life.

My name is Brandon Phillips. I have been a professional polo player for the past 22 years, playing all over the world at the highest level. This year I will be competing in my 23rd season at the International Polo Club with the Postage Stamp Farm Polo Team.
At the age of 15 I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, stage 4. I was given 6 weeks to live. The shock of this is that it literally happened overnight. I played a rugby game on the Thursday, a Polo game on the Friday, and a Soccer game on the Saturday. Then woke up Sunday morning with my left leg aching. Then my life changed forever..
Obviously, I overcame the odds and survived and just 2 years later I played in my first professional polo game and have been a professional athlete ever since.
Four years ago I started my own charity event called Polo For A Purpose. All proceeds are donated to the local LLS here in Palm Beach. To date we have raised close to $1,000,000 in the last 4 years. This year will be our 5th annual event on January 15th at the International Polo Club.

Michelle is the best example of a selfless nurse who cares so much for the children and the care they receive. She had a vision and with God on her side the children have a great proponent of true assistance and love.

The Kids Cancer Foundation is blessed to have the support of individuals like you. We could not do what we do without that support and because of it we are blessed to be able to do what we do to make the journey a little easier for our young patients and families.

Nobody Cares More! Aligned A Horse Show I Was Running, With Kids Cancer Foundation Not Knowing Anything About The Group. Three Weeks Later, I Learned A Lot! The Most Giving, Selfless Group Which Gave Me Revitalized Hope In Humanity. In The Three Short Weeks, They Put It Together and We Raised About $10,000. Watch Their Video but don't watch it without tissues. I cried Like a baby. The most amazing group of people I know. What they do for the whole family is what separates this non-profit from others. They understand the toll cancer has on not just the child with it but the whole family!

Kids Cancer is a wonderful organization!! I have two roles, both of which I love. My first position is visiting the children at the hospital with my therapy dog. This makes the children so happy and instead of simply going to the hospital for treatment, they are coming to see "Cookie." Secondly, I see the children and their families if they need counseling for any issues coming up throughout their treatment. My experiences with Kids Cancer Foundation are particularly fulfilling because Michelle , the director and Nicole the child care supervisor are both exceptional in the way they run the organization. They are friendly, professional, loving, kind and caring people. They both make everyone feel happy just to be part of the organization and they are extremely proficient in organizing events and activities to help the families. The children and families are of course, simply beautiful to work with and it is a great feeling to know you're making a difference.

Michelle offers such fabulous experiences for the children at the Kids Cancer Foundation. As a volunteer I assisted in leading one of her children in a leadline class at a horse show in Wellington. MIchelle had arranged for quiet, gentle horses and ponies to arrive at the show. We mounted these brave, excited kids up on their mounts and led them into the ring amid applause, cheers, and big smiles all around. Each rider received a ribbon, but more importantly they were praised for their bravery (for some it was their first time on a horse!), and their composure. They loved their horses! Another time I attended a fair with a horsey theme hosted by the Foundation. There were many booths for everyone to enjoy. The kids and their sibs , parents and friends could paint, make jewelry, sculpt, learn about hoof care from a farrier, and even ride a "bunking bronco." I helped give pony rides, and believe me, the line for a ride was very long!! I was so impressed by the commitment of the staff, by the talents and generosity of the volunteers and visiting artists, and of course by the kids themselves. They are all so special and deserve this fun and attention to help them as they recover from illness. The Foundation is deeply committed to providing these children with memorable experiences which will infuse joy into their lives and may even ignite their spirits with a new passion. They deserve it!

Kids Cancer Foundation, Inc. is a top notch charity with a big heart. As a member of the United States Submarine Veterans, Inc., I have personally attended several events at the KCF with other members of our organization, where we made some of the patients "Honorary Submariners" and presented them with embroidered hats and certificates. MIchelle Boyle, Sandy Erb and the entire staff are professionals and do an outstanding job of giving their patients all the care, support and love they deserve. One visit to their facility will make you a believer and staunch supporter of the Kids Cancer Foundation.

While the hospital is busy taking care of the patient Kids Cancer Foundation is always nearby taking care of the family. The parents and the siblings are served by all the wonderful information and services offered by KCF. Michelle and Sandy are a wealth of information always presented with a winning smile and a warm hug. My daughter is a cancer survivor and it wouldn't have been the same experience without KCF. We continue to stay in touch, attend events and sometimes volunteer. Please donate your time or money to this wonderful nonprofit!!!

We cannot even begin to put into words what the foundation has done for our family. From day one of being in the hospital, they came in and talked to us and helped us tremendously. The center itself is such a fantastic place for the children. My girls cannot wait to go and ask everyday if they can go earlier and earlier. The amazing people that work and volunteer there always have a smile on there face and are so incredibly amazing with the children. They go above and beyond with everything that they do. They have touched our lives in so many ways and we are so glad that they are in our lives.!

My daughter was diagnosed on September 1, 2014 after being hospitalized for over a month. I was forced to leave my job so I can care for my baby around the clock. Not being able to work, I had no income and went into eviction with my apartment and nowhere to go. Michelle O'Boyle from Kids Cancer worked diligently in finding my daughter and I a place to live. I am forever grateful for her help.
