The Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program, KCCP, in support of Kiwanis Doernbecher Children’s Cancer Program in Portland OR., Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program in Seattle WA. and the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program in British Columbia and the Yukon, will raise money and awareness to fight and find the cure for children’s cancer.

The KCCP was founded by Past Governor Frank Morehouse of the Pacific Northwest District of Kiwanis International in 2010. Past Governor Frank’s inspiration was a young cancer patient named Penny. Past Governor Frank worked at the hospital where Penny stayed. Penny was diagnosed with a brain tumor and would require surgery and radiation therapy. Penny would visit Past Governor Frank during her hospital stays and talk about what was happening to her. Penny eventually lost her battle with cancer. The KCCP is dedicated to Penny’s memory.
SEATTLE — Seattle Children’s Hospital made a landmark announcement Wednesday — the first leukemia patient in the state to try a new cancer therapy is disease free.
