Why We Fight
Kayleigh was a bright, fun loving, beautiful little girl. On May 13, 2016, Kayleigh's 7th birthday, she was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. DIPG is terminal brain cancer with a 0% survival rate - the most deadly cancer we face today.  Each year in the United States, the disease effects approximately 300-350 children between the ages 6-10 with life expectancy from diagnosis being a meger 6-9 months. 

Kayleigh's journey lasted 6 months, during which her family discovered a great need for pediatric cancer awareness and research funding. Children are our greatest treasures, yet pediatric cancer research receives less than 4% of the federal cancer funding budget.  It is through the gifts from individuals, businesses, and private foundations that make research for our children possible.

The PFK Foundation was created to help raise awareness and research funding for pediatric cancer - ensuring that money reaches the doctors and hospitals working to find hope for children with this disease. We will fight DIPG in memory of Kayleigh and all the other children we have lost too soon. 

This year we have partnered with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to help fund a promising new trial. Would you consider joining us in the fight against pediatric cancer?

Defeating childhood cancer is a big dream,
but if your dreams don't scare you,
they aren't big enough...
