The Story of Kier's Kidz

Our funding of treatment is focused on paying for the DNA sequencing of a child's cancer at the onset of treatment so that the best-known treatment options for a particular child and that child's particular cancer are utilized. This approach to pediatric cancer treatment is called the Precision Medicine Approach. Because this treatment method is targeted by the individual child's genetic make-up and that child's specific cancer, we hope and expect that the child will experience better outcomes and fewer short- and long-term treatment side-effects.

We also help children and their families by offering them some financial support in cases of verified need. Typically, we help pay expenses up to $500. We also help the parents of children with cancer with information gathering and referral possibilities.

Kier's Kidz is the legacy of Kiersten Hickman-Perfetti who at the age of twenty-two lost her life to alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of pediatric cancer. While fighting her own cancer for three-and-a-half years, Kier helped younger children who were being treated for cancer in The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia as much as she could. Kier would spend time talking to, playing with and encouraging these younger children. Helping these children became a major focus of Kier's life. A year before she died, Kier came up with the idea of Kier's Kidz and with the help of her parents, set into motion the development of this organization.

Kier's Kidz is the legacy of love and hope that Kier left for children with cancer, a legacy that she has asked all of us to carry on for her.

For several years, Kier's Kidz raised money for other nonprofits that helped children with cancer. In 2012 Kier's Kidz became a 501(c)(3) federal-designated nonprofit, and since then we have been able to directly fund children and their families.

Kier's Kidz plans to continue to help children with cancer by raising money through its end-of-the-year campaign and through other events, such as scrapbooking get-togethers, concerts, 5K runs and walks, golf tournaments, art and wrist bracelet sales, and other activities that people devise. If you have an idea or want to run an event to help Kier's Kidz, please email us at kierskidz@me.com. We will help you with your event as much as we can.
