THE MISSION OF THE SADIE KELLER FOUNDATION

"I know how hard it is to fight cancer as a child, first hand. My mission for the Sadie Keller Foundation is to put a smile on the faces of children fighting cancer all over and remind them to keep fighting by giving them special gifts, to raise awareness for childhood cancer, and to make a difference."

- Sadie Keller, age 9 

Sadie's Story

 On February 25, 2015, at the age of 7, Sadie Keller was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. For the last  2 1/2 years, Sadie has fought through many infections, blood transfusions, very rare side effects, received weekly chemotherapy and was out of school for her 2nd and 3rd grade years, and basically missed out on just being a kid. She received her last chemotherapy on May 26, 2017. 
Only 2 months after Sadie was diagnosed, she began making video's about what its like to have cancer as a child. She did these in a closet without her parents knowing. Sadie hated to not know what to expect, so she made these videos to help other kids not be so afraid.  These videos have been found by many and have even been used on ESPN during Jimmy V week. Sadie's mission continued as she began working with TheTruth365 to help raise awareness for Childhood Cancer, lobbies in Washington D.C. for Childhood Cancer, is a public speaker and helps run her foundation to help thousands of Childhood Cancer fighters all over the United States. Sadie is also an incredible artist. She is currently 10 years old and in the 5th grade.

Sadie's Sleigh

In 2015, Sadie was talking to her oncologist about whether Santa came to the hospital on Christmas. She wondered how he would find them and was scared that Santa would go to their home instead of the hospital. Making the children fighting cancer in the hospital, left with not very many presents. Sadie also hated being in the hospital and couldn't imagine being there on Christmas Day. So, she decided to do a toy drive to help make the kids fighting cancer that had to be in the hospital on Christmas Day, have a better Christmas. In 2015, she set her goal at 300 toys and collected over 1300! In 2016, her goal grew as she decided to donate to both Children's Medical Center in Dallas (where she receives treatment), and also Cook Children's in Fort Worth. Her goal for 2016 was to collect 3000 toys and she ended up collecting over 4600 toys!!! 2017 will be even larger as we continue to add hospitals to donate to the children battling cancer. Your donation will help make so many children fighting cancer have a better Christmas morning. They are going through so much and could use your help.

Milestone Gifts

Sadie knows far too well how difficult this journey is. Countless hospital stays and visits, being poked and prodded, infections, long days of chemotherapy while other kids are playing outside with friends, etc. She wanted to do something to help show how proud we are of these cancer fighters for reaching so many HUGE milestones or maybe just spoil them and remind them to keep fighting. The Milestone gifts do just that. Examples of Milestones are, End of Chemo, reaching remission or NED, getting to go home from the hospital after a long stay, completing radiation, getting through something really hard, etc... A Milestone could also be that they are having a hard time and could use something to cheer them up, or they are on isolation so can't leave their room, making a hospital stay very lonely. A milestone gift is a larger gift that shows the child how proud we are of them for fighting so hard! Your donation will mean so much to these children that are fighting everyday for their lives. Sadie's goal is to get a Milestone gift in each child's hands that are fighting cancer at some point through their treatment. 
We need your help to accomplish that. Please click the donate button to help!

Parents Packs

Coming Soon......
 
When your child is diagnosed with cancer your world stops right at that moment. Suddenly nothing else matters but saving your child. When Sadie was diagnosed she was in the hospital for over a month and it was tough on the family. Because of this time, we saw a need that was, and is easily not thought about. A need for a good meal and a need for help with the many trips back and forth to the hospital, sometimes multiple times a day. Our Parents Packs will help with this. They will include Uber Eats gift cards to provide good meals during long hospital stays, Gas cards to help with the back and forth driving for long hospital stays or weekly clinic visits, along with other coupons and gift cards. We know first hand what a need there is for this and how helpful this will be for parents in the same situation we are/have been in.
Your donation will help alleviate some of the stress the parents are feeling, so they can focus on being there for their child. This program is currently available for parents in the DFW area.
