Who We Are
Kathy’s Kids Foundation (KKF) was founded by her sons in 2013 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to help support local families who are caring for a family member suffering from a critical illness, more specifically related to cancer diagnosis’.
After beating her first diagnosis in 2003, we lost Kathy to stage IV breast cancer after a four-year battle in January 2013. As a family, we knew that we needed to honor our mother by keeping her spirit of selflessness and generosity alive. Our mother spent much of her adult life helping others, whether it was at work where she was an RN, in the community where she helped run the local Pop Warner football league or at home where she raised five crazy boys. When our mom was first diagnosed with breast cancer, families lined up at our door providing hot cooked meals and/or offering to drive one of the brothers (Kathy’s Kids) to a practice. The warmth and support we received from others was held close to our hearts. We knew that we needed to help provide support to local families experiencing a similar situation, the same way others did for us during the loss of our mother.
