At what age do you start feeling compassion for someone dealing with challenges you don’t face? When should you begin contributing to the community that gives so much to you? Are you ever too young to do something about the problems in your community instead of just complaining about them? We don’t think so!
K Cancer Baseball is a youth run 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation working to make a difference in the lives of state-line (WI/IL) families battling childhood cancer. We work to increase awareness to Childhood Cancer issues, assist established non profits that are doing great work in this area, and get in the trenches to provide direct assistance to those in need.
Let’s bring the issues closer to home.
When you find out your child has cancer, you immediately feel “cut off” from society. The constant travel out of the area further isolates you from your neighbors. The added costs for gas, food, and lodging make a bad situation even worse. State-line, we have a problem!
This isn’t Swedish American Health Systems problem. It’s not Rockford Health System or Saint Anthony Medical Center or Beloit Health Systems problem. It’s our problem!
