At Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance, our highest purpose is to provide an invaluable resource for thousands of Northern California children with cancer and their families.
“Our mission is to support children with cancer and their families with emotional, educational, and financial support while increasing awareness and funding research toward a cure.”
Why We Exist
Childhood Cancer is a Family Diagnosis
There are three key facts about childhood cancer:
- Childhood cancer does not discriminate.
- A childhood cancer diagnosis targets the entire family.
- No family can prepare for a childhood cancer diagnosis.How We Help
The Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance provides a network of compassionate support to children with cancer and their families. Our staff, interns, volunteers, and supporters serve as a vital resource for hope to those going through a fight no child or family should have to endure alone.
Family Navigator Program
Each family we serve is assigned a navigator who provides support along with the information, resources, and education necessary to navigate the complexities of the family’s childhood cancer journey. The personal support and resources help families deal with the anxiety induced by a cancer diagnosis.
Who We Serve
Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance serves children and their families referred from the following partner hospitals: UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, Sutter Memorial, Kaiser Permanente Roseville, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, Kaiser Permanente Oakland.
