Hope, Strength, and Healing for families coping with a child cancer diagnosis

Keaton’s Girlfriendz Spa Day

Everyone deserves some pampering time!

A huge thank you to our new friends at Girlfriendz Spa Day, for hosting a relaxing, joy-filled event just for Keaton’s kiddos, siblings, and special friends!

Kiddos were pampered with a relaxing spa day which included manicures, pedicures, hair art and makeup, while also enjoying snacks and beverages just for them! To add to the fun, the girls showed off their fresh new look by participating in a runway fashion show, and closed out with a sparkling cider toast, dance party, and karaoke to celebrate! Everyone had such an amazing time, and our team was filled with joy as we saw the wonderful connections happening between patients, siblings, and caregivers.  

Although we always strive to create moments of joy, memories, and respite, our true mission is to create a childhood cancer community filled with love, support, and connections where each individual family member can feel heard and understood by others going through a similar experience, knowing and remembering that they are not alone in this journey.  

Thank you, Girlfriendz Spa Day, for sharing this wonderful opportunity with our Keaton families and we look forward to partnering in the future!  

Keaton’s Back-to-School

As a part of our Education, Research & Advocacy Program, Keaton’s hosted our 2nd annual Back-to-School event just in time for the new school year! Kiddos and siblings shared joy and excitement as they picked out a brand-new backpack, lunchbox, and essential school supplies, and put their skills to the test by participating in on-site STEM activities. It was such a great time connecting with so many families and helping them get prepared for an exciting new school year! For those families who couldn’t attend this event, our team of Family Navigators were honored to hand-deliver the backpacks and school supplies knowing how crucial this support is for many families.
