Keegan’s battle and our family’s journey with childhood cancer was the driving force to start “Kisses from Keegan and Friends,” so we could give back to others on their own difficult journey. We want to offer them time to be a family with no outside worries.
Kisses from Keegan and Friends offers emotional and financial support to children undergoing cancer treatment, as well as to their families. Our organization raises charitable donations through a variety of fundraising activities, such as dinners, sporting events, social events, grants and offers from the public.
Focused primarily in southeastern Wisconsin, Kisses from Keegan and Friends raises awareness of childhood cancer and is comprised of volunteers dedicated to helping these children and their families through difficult times.
The objectives and purpose of this organization are:
One small child, one strong will, the love and compassion of family and community…
That’s how Kisses from Keegan & Friends was born.
Keegan was your typical 7-year-old little girl who loved to cheer and spend time with her family and friends. On October 11, her life and that of our family took a drastic turn when she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. After over 2 years of chemotherapy, pills, shots, lumbar punctures, surgeries and other complications, with the love and support of family, friends and strangers alike, Keegan won her battle with cancer.
While Keegan was in treatment, we were fortunate enough to meet some other amazing cancer warriors and their families, along with the incredible staff at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. We were able to witness a few fighters ring the bell, signifying the end of treatment, but also had become friends with some families whose child lost their battle.
Keegan’s battle and our family’s journey with childhood cancer was the driving force to start “Kisses from Keegan and Friends,” so we could give back to others on their own difficult journey. We want to offer them time to be a family with no outside worries. We know we can’t take cancer away, but maybe we can help put it on the backburner—at least for a little while.
Granting wishes and joyful experiences for local kids fighting cancer.
Every donation counts – we can’t do our work without your support!
Kisses from Keegan is an all-volunteer organization. We are always looking for special people to help at our events.
