Our Mission

Our mission is to provide life-saving hope and inspiration to families facing a pediatric cancer ordeal through outreach, information and mentoring.


BraveHearts for Kids was conceived to make a life-or-death difference for a child diagnosed with cancer.  By educating, supporting and comforting families in this worst of circumstances, we can help save lives and heal wounded families – together.

  • We provide an infusion of facts and hope to families during their time of crisis.
  • We offer emotional support through 1-on-1 mentoring from parents of pediatric cancer survivors.
  • We improve a child's survival odds through access to financial assistance and authoritative information.
