Kids Cancer Foundation Hosts Santa Sleigh Stop At Wellington Green

KCF patient Johan Antigua and his family visit with Santa.

The Kids Cancer Foundation held its annual Christmas and holiday party at the Mall at Wellington Green on Saturday, Dec. 12 in the Live 360 studio.

Due to health and safety concerns, the annual Breakfast with Santa that the foundation usually hosts at the South Florida Fairgrounds was canceled. However, the foundation found a safe and socially distanced alternative to celebrate.

At the Santa Sleigh Stop event, children met Santa, took family photos and collected gifts. The many generous volunteers working the event included this year’s FAU medical students, Life.Church, the ladies of the Couture Club, as well as Journey Church, which provided crafts and miniature Christmas trees for the children to decorate.

Although 2020 has been a challenging year for everybody, the Kids Cancer Foundation is thankful that they managed to round the year out on a jolly and hopeful note for all their patients and families battling childhood cancer.

The Kids Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit founded in 2001 to provide support to local children and families battling childhood cancer and/or blood disorders.
