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

Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance – Mission in Motion January / February 2022

Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance is committed to strengthening resilience through hope, connectivity, advocacy, and empowerment. Our Thriving Together Programs will provide peer-to-peer support among young patients, teens, siblings, survivors, warriors, caretakers, and bereaved families. Foundational elements include an emphasis on coping strategies, increased access to mental health support, and customized support from a trauma-informed lens.

Our precious children’s lives are forever changed by a cancer diagnosis. Parents and caretakers are fighting every single day to save their child’s life.

Throughout 2021, Keaton’s served the increased demands for comprehensive, family support services in our region. Thanks to our community, over 400 pediatric cancer patients and their families, totaling over 1,800 individuals, received customized support through our Family Navigator Programs. Thank you for your continued passion and dedication to fighting childhood cancers. Together we will overcome. Together we will overcome and heal from the effects of pediatric cancer.

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.
