Bags of Fun Kansas City
The mission of Bags of Fun Kansas City is to make a difference in the lives of children and their families who are faced with fighting cancer and other long-term childhood diseases. The Andrew Olson Foundation has partnered with Bags of Fun KC to support pediatric oncology patients. We sponsor the backpack filled with educational, interactive and silly toys that give a child a better day, a smile and something to focus on other than their illness. To parents carrying a heavy burden, the bags bring relief, joy and a sense that someone understands. Please click on our donate button to help us continue our support of these little heroes.
As parents, it is so natural to have hopes and dreams for our child. We plan what we hope the future will hold for them: first day of school, sports they’ll play, music lessons, prom, high school graduations and on to college. We want nothing more than to see their dreams come true.
When parents are told their child has cancer, those goals are put on hold; they are replaced with the more immediate goals of treatment plans, doctor appointments and survival. Milestones change from “first tooth” to “number of months cancer free”.
