“I know firsthand the physical and emotional toll of spending 15 grueling months in the hospital, enduring 9 cycles of chemotherapy, and undergoing 15 surgeries. My parents put their own lives on hold to stand by my side every step of the way. However, I survived!
On the day of my final chemotherapy treatment, as I prepared to leave the hospital for the last time, I realized that while my own battle had ended, the fight for countless other children and families was far from over. Therefore, I started KCCF in 2020 with $900 in my piggy bank.”
Let us save lives together!
