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

Keaton’s Child Cancer Alliance – Mission in Motion May / June 2022


Our annual summer kick-off event at Funderland Amusement Park held on Friday, June 17th was a tropical delight with 46 families and over 250 guests in attendance. This year’s Disney Luau themed gathering provided joy-filled experiences, created special memories, and offered respite from daily cancer regimens.

Along with special guest appearances from Mickey, Minnie, and other characters that joined in on the fun, families had an opportunity to enjoy rides, games, arts & crafts, and a fun-filled dance party! It was a magical evening seeing our Keaton’s families sharing joy and laughter with one another.

“I saw Eddy laugh, I saw my kid being a kid again!! He enjoyed every single ride he got on with his sister to the fullest!! He was around other kids that are going through the same thing as he is and he felt good. I cried because for the first time in over a month he didn’t have to worry about his port or an IV or chemo or anything cancer related. I cried because he was able to enjoy a few hours of pure joy! Pure Joy!!!” – Jessica, Eddy’s Mom

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.
