When & Where
Kellsie's Hope Foundation
Kellsie’s Hope was started by Kellsie Marchbanks during her second round of cancer treatment. After her passing in June 2011 of Osteosarcoma, the Marchbanks family formed Kellsie’s Hope Foundation Inc, to celebrate the life of this remarkable young woman and to continue the work she started from her hospital bed.
Kellsie’s Hope Foundation Inc, mission is to lighten the load of families that have children suffering from cancer by offering support for trips, and gifts that might otherwise be unattainable to a child with cancer. Kellsie’s foundation is also dedicated to raising funds to support research into childhood cancers such as hers and supporting the nursing field with a nursing scholarship each year.
Corporation and individuals making donations to Kellsie’s Hope Foundation can be assured that their donations will help to make a child with cancer life a little easier and to support the goal of putting an end to childhood cancer.
