Kellsie wished to increase awareness of childhood cancer and provide support for pediatric cancer research. Throughout her battle with cancer, prayers poured in from every state in the nation and several other countries. Kellsie and her brother Parker kept track of those prayers by marking the locations on a big map of the United States.
In an effort to make Kellsie’s wish come true, the Kellsie’s Hope Foundation launched the annual “States of Hope” campaign which begins each year on her birthday, July 6th. The campaign extends through the end of September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The idea is simple. Donors throughout the country are asked to make a donation in any amount which is then credited to their state. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $500 from each state and a grand total of at least $25,000 by September 30th. All donations go directly to fund research of osteosarcoma and other childhood cancers.
Our next campaign begins Wednesday July 6, 2016.
