Kimberly Wade On The Fight Against Pediatric Cancer

kimberly wade - kids shouldn't have cancer

Interview #84

We’re honored to have Kimberly Wade, founder of Kids Shouldn’t Have Cancer, join us to tell the story of her son Johnny. His battle with cancer and wish that no child should ever suffer cancer inspired his Mom to start The Kids Shouldn’t Have Cancer Foundation.

To date they have raised $1.3M in just over 3 years for pediatric cancer research. But a new bill, introduced into Congress in April 2019, will provide $370,000,000 for pediatric cancer research.

If you want to support Kids Shouldn’t Have Cancer there are local events, The Gold Party and Lemonade Stand, happening right here in Frisco.
