The mission of Kids Kicking Cancer is to ease the pain of very sick children while empowering them to heal physically, spiritually and emotionally. Using the practice of martial arts/karate they help children to mitigate pain and anxiety and help them to feel they have power over their lives. This grant supports the growth of Kids Kicking Cancer (originally founded in Michigan) in Illinois providing non pharmacological relief for children in the care of UChicago Comer Children’s Hospital.
