What We Do
Who We are
Founded in 2009 by neighbors and friends in Lenexa, Supporting Kids Foundation is dedicated to helping Kansas City area families battling childhood cancer. We want to make sure parents remain focused on being by their child’s side during treatment and not worrying about bills that pile up at home.
Brian Weber talks about losing his daughter Lucy to pediatric cancer and the impact of SKF on their journey.
No one budgets for cancer.
And it is this reality is that drives each of us.

How we do it
It is through the generosity of local businesses and donors like you that SKF is able to provide assistance and hope to Kansas City area families. Each year we host 3 major events: a golf tournament, a poker tournament, and a ‘Hearts of Gold’ gala. Please join us at these events and encourage local businesses to partner with us as an event sponsor or donor.
