Message from Rabbi G. - Founder
Dear Friends,

I remember watching my daughter’s doctors walking down the corridor at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Somehow, I knew that our room was their destination. The grim expressions they wore, were a reflection of the next round of bad news that we were soon to bear and I knew it. That forty second journey seemed like a lifetime.

Time can be forever or almost never. The passing of another year, however reckoned, belies the fact that over thirty million seconds had to tick upon the clock. The years meld into decades and beyond, seemingly faster than we can turn the pages of the calendar. For me, as we enter 2019, the twentieth anniversary of Kids Kicking Cancer is a reflection of a lifetime. June 1999, the first Kids Kicking Cancer class at Children’s Hospital of Michigan is so engraved into my soul, that it is hard to imagine life before. It also feels like just yesterday.

That journey could not have happened without you. So many people have opened up their hearts and souls, as well as their pocketbooks, to make Kids Kicking Cancer a reality. We have a very big dream for tomorrow. As we grow around the globe, we will reach every child in pain and teach them the lessons of our little heroes. “No matter what we face in our lives, we can breathe in the light and blow out the darkness.” Our promise to those children is that tomorrow will not seem far away.

Much love and appreciation,
In the Words of a
Heroes Circle Family

I truly want to use this opportunity to thank you and the entire KKC team for the wonderful work you do impacting the life's of these kids. They fight their lifelong health battles each day knowing fully well that you got their back. The meditations and breathing techniques are really helpful especially when Gabby is in a lot of pain. 

Gabby adds- I am so thankful for the staff that help me manage my pain by teaching me power breathing and body scans.

Her sister Abby says - thank you for helping my sister in the hospital by showing her how to power breathe.
