From Yav Keogh, Oscar’s mother:
“Oscar’s Kids was created in honor of our incredible son Oscar who was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in January 2018, passing just 19 months later in July 2019. Our mission as a charity is guided by the immense joy with which he lived life, his endless bravery and the magic he injected into every day, even the hardest ones. It is also inspired by the kindness and support bestowed upon us by so many charities and individuals during that time. One of the greatest gifts was the beginning of our friendship with Melissa Rauch and her husband Winston which not only brought great happiness to Oscar’s life and created a deep bond between our two families, but also led to us taking this journey together as friends and parents to create an international pediatric cancer charity to benefit and support children on both sides of the Atlantic.”
How Support Helps
Research is our greatest tool in discovering new and improved ways to help treat and cure children. Yet childhood cancer research is massively underfunded around the world. Your funding of Oscar’s Kids will assist in our mission to change those odds, and help in so many other ways!
