Dedicated to Our Little Warriors

Kids Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, founded in 2001 whose mission is to provide hope and support to local children and families battling childhood cancer and/or blood disorders. We accomplish this by providing compassionate, easily accessible, supportive care services.

The Kids Cancer Foundation provides hope and support to our young patients and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer their childhood days quickly change to be filled with chemo and endless doctor and hospital visits. Life not only changes for the child but for the entire family.

Doctors and Nurses work hard to cure the cancer but families need more than just medical help to get through this stressful and fearful time in their lives. This is where Kids Cancer Foundation steps in to fill this void.




This amazing story began 12 years ago when Gary Rowan’s daughter, Ashley, passed away from cancer; she was only 3 years old. A couple years later, Gary decided to hold a BBQ in her honor with friends and family. As the event grew, Gary realized the potential and decided to help those suffering in the same way. After careful consideration, The Kids Cancer Foundation, headquartered in Royal Palm Beach, was selected. To date the event has grown to 500 people and has raised thousands of dollars for the Foundation.
April 11, 2015 marked a turning point for the 10th annual event with a new venue home - The American German Club!! Our guest were treated with dynamite bands, fantastic food, raffles, vendors and the kids had non stop fun, training with CJ Jones NFL Patriot, dancing with Chuck E Cheese, crafts with Home Depot and playing with Pet Rescued Puppies. This year we added 5 new corporate sponsors and will continue working aggressively at growing our offering.
