Our founding mission is to create special moments and lasting memories for families living with pediatric brain tumors through our Kiss of HOPE program. In 2018, we expanded our mission to include funding of brain cancer clinical research trials at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
Founded in 2011, cancer kiss my cooley (r) is a Huntley, IL based 501(c)3 charitable organization. Our Board of Directors are dedicated to raising community awareness towards pediatric brain tumors. CKMC (r) grants Kisses of HOPE, which are special moments or experiences tailor made for the patient and their family. We receive our Kiss of HOPE referrals aged 0-18 years old through our established partnerships. We are partnered with the brain tumor program at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, IL and Journeycare, a Barrington, IL based community agency that provides hospice and palliative care services to children facing serious or life-limiting illnesses.
