Mission Statement

The Pinky Swear Foundation helps kids with cancer and their families with immediate financial and emotional needs assistance.

Description

When 9-year-old Mitch was being treated for cancer at the University of Minnesota Children's Hospital, he saw that other kids also being treated were not getting as much attention as he was. His family was always there, and he was always getting gifts from people who loved him.

This was an unacceptable situation for Mitch. He said, "Dad, these families need our help", and he came up with a plan. Mitch knew he had money in the bank, and he instructed his dad to withdraw it all. Later, he put the money into envelopes and slid one under each child’s door on the pediatric oncology floor. This brought Mitch more joy than he had felt in a long time, and when he realized he wouldn’t be around to do it again, he demanded his dad Pinky Swear to keep helping them - forever.

The Pinky Swear Foundation was formed by Steve and Becky Chepokas in memory of their son Mitch. Since his passing in 2003, the Pinky Swear Foundation has provided financial and quality-of-life support to the families of children being treated for cancer.
