Every year children who are undergoing cancer treatment are selected to become Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer Warriors. This program is designed to give children fighting cancer, their siblings and parents’ fun activities throughout the year. Warrior Families are recognized, supported and build lasting memories together. All events are free due to the generous support of our sponsors. This program provides “medicine for the soul”, and opportunities for friendship with other families walking the cancer journey. Contact WOKC to see how you can sponsor an event or a family.
Partnering with Camp Sunshine, the whole family is invited to Maine to spend time with other families battling cancer while enjoying canoeing, fishing and other fun activities. All costs, including airfare, is covered for the whole family. Camp Sunshine is designed to give support and relaxation from the daily battle these families face.
The Buddy Bag is a rolling suitcase filled with comfort and hygiene items provided free of charge to all hospitals in the DFW area. A Buddy Bag is given to each child on their first day of hospital admission for a cancer diagnosis. Each year hundreds of families arrive at the hospital for testing unaware and ill-prepared for a long hospital stay.
The Buddy Bag is designed to help ease the transition from home to hospital. Each Buddy Bag is filled with personal items and hospital stay necessities for both child and parent. The idea for the Buddy Bag Program started with a mom who had been in that situation, and recognized the need. All items in the bag were chosen by moms who children have cancer and who know better than anyone what items are needed in time of crisis.
Cancer is the leading cause of childhood death by disease in the U.S. and claims approximately 1,800 children annually. More than 15,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer funds physicians and scientists across the U.S. in their quest to cure cancer. Funding focuses on novel, innovative research that advances science and increases survival for children while reducing adverse treatment side effects. With research, survival rates are increasing, but there is much more work ahead. Our mission is simple: To work relentlessly for a day when ALL children are living cancer-free. Please join us in funding pediatric cancer research – even just one child with cancer, is one child too many!
