Believe it or not, Teddy is 7(!) and this is our 4th KC Cares for Kids walk! From the moment that Teddy was diagnosed with an aggressive brain cancer, the Children's Mercy Hematology/Oncology staff has been beside us on every step of the journey. We are so grateful to Childen's Mercy, and hope that you'll contribute whatever you're able to our Team Teddy 2018 walking team!
Why Children’s Mercy?
