Kids Cancer Foundation Hosts Jam-Packed Backpacks Event

Kids Cancer Foundation in Royal Palm Beach recently distributed backpacks packed with school supplies to local patients and families battling childhood cancer in its “Jam-Packed Backpacks” event.

All school supplies were provided thanks to generous donors — a variety of individuals, Journey Church, the King’s Academy Class of 2024, the Loxahatchee and Acreage communities, and the Step-by-Step Foundation.

During these unprecedented times, with COVID-19 worries and adjusting to virtual learning this upcoming school year, on top of the hardship faced by the families battling with cancer, the foundation strives to do all it can to help make these families’ journeys a bit easier.

The Kids Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit charity founded in 2001 whose mission is to provide hope and support to local children and families battling childhood cancer and/or blood disorders. For more info., visit
