What is Courageous Kidz?

Courageous Kidz is a community that strives to be a Safe Haven for Kids with Cancer. We understand that cancer is so much more than a disease. We believe that the child has the disease, the family has the cancer. The doctors are a there to treat the disease. We’re here to treat everything else. At Courageous Kidz, our children find a family where everyone understands their problems, where no one asks questions, where they can be wonderfully normal. For more information

How are the children selected for sponsorship?
The children are cancer patient or sibling of a cancer patient and are part of the Courageous Kidz organization. The children were also selected because of their family financial situation.
