The Triumph Over Kid Cancer foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of children with cancer by raising their spirits, raising the public’s awareness, and funding research to improve the treatment and survivability of pediatric cancers.

Children with cancer often suffer not just from the physical effects of their disease, but from the isolation which comes from being apart and disconnected – from friends, from siblings, and from normalcy in their lives.

One thing James Ragan learned during his fight was that spending time with other cancer patients was an incredible way to build strength and spirit to help maintain the courage to continue fighting through the grueling cancer treatments. Because of this, TOKC provides activities and opportunities for pediatric cancer patients to socialize, enjoy events, and bond with those who know what being a kid with cancer is like.

TOKC continues to bring the dreams of kids with cancer to life.  Sometimes just having the chance to be a kid again, even for a few days, is enough to give you the strength and hope to survive.
