Providing families with seriously and chronically ill children with daily encouragement and life changing experiences. Honoring and supporting women who are battling and those who have achieved victory over breast cancer.
PROGRAMS Christmas in July This program provides critically ill pediatric cancer patients with an unexpected special day to lift spirits, give out gifts, and bring smiles to the faces of children. The inaugural program on July 11, 2018 was a success as Jackson visited with patients at Texas Children's Hospital. Each child received an autographed football, Nintendo Switch with "Mario Kart" video game, and a stuffed Build-A-Bear with an inspirational message from Kareem. He plans to partner with Houston-area hospitals each summer to make Christmas in July an annual program. Pretty in Pink The foundation's first "Pretty in Pink Night: A Breast Cancer Dinner to Honor Your Fight" took place on October 8th, 2018 with plans for another program in 2019. The evening celebrated women who are currently battling or who have achieved victory over breast cancer, showering them with VIP treatment and an opportunity to meet Kareem and his mom, who is one of the key inspirations behind his foundation's mission. The women enjoyed themed cocktails, a gourmet dinner, and spa services courtesy of The Four Seasons Houston, received vouchers for free mammograms courtesy of The Rose, and had prosthesis bra fittings provided by Nordstroms.
