Local non-profit organization changes name

Indian Summer Camp for Kids with Cancer, a Kentucky based non-profit organization dedicated to serving children with cancer and their families, is changing its name to Kids Cancer Alliance, Inc. after 32 years of operation. This announcement comes during National Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month.

Traditionally, Indian Summer Camp hosted two programs: a weeklong summer camp for children with cancer ages 6-18 and a Teen Weekend Retreat each fall for teens with cancer. However, in recent years, the organization has been expanding and now offers oncology and sibling camps, teen and family retreats, in-hospital programs, and financial support to children with cancer and their families.

Executive Director, Shelby Dehner, states “The name Kids Cancer Alliance clearly states our mission of helping kids with cancer and covers all of the services that we are proud to offer the families of children with cancer in Kentucky and surround areas.”

All of Kids Cancer Alliance’s programs are provided free of charge to the families of children with cancer and are fully funded by donations from individuals, businesses and foundations in our community. To learn how you can get involved and help Kids Cancer Alliance, visit kidscanceralliance.org.
