Why We Participate
We’ve joined the fight against pediatric cancer and blood disorders by signing up for the KC Cares for Kids Walk. Now, we need your help to reach our fundraising goal. It’s going to take all of us to put an end to childhood cancer and blood disorders, so please support us by making a donation or by joining our team.
Why Children’s Mercy?
Each year, Children’s Mercy provides comprehensive care to nearly 2,000 children with childhood cancers, sickle cell disease, hemophilia and other blood disorders, with survival rates frequently above national averages.
Children’s Mercy has one of the nation’s largest Child Life programs, making the hospital experience more comfortable for patients and families.
From equipment made for their smaller bodies to unique specialty areas for infants, children and teenagers, everything at Children’s Mercy is designed for children so that we can best serve them at all stages of growth.
