"Clear, simple but comprehensive and compassionate...Should be a bible for everyone facing cancer." Jane E. Brody, New York Times.
The original Kids Konnected was formed in 1993 as Komen Kids by then ll year old Jon Wagner-Holtz after his mother was treated for breast cancer. At that time there were no programs where Jon could talk to other kids that knew what it was like to have a sick parent. So Jon decided to change things by starting his own hotline to help other kids going through similar situations. And that's how Kids Konnected got started!
Since then the Kids Konnected program has operated under the premise that when a parent gets cancer, the entire family is affected and the needs of the children must be addressed. Our program started in California and soon spread nationwide. Find a location near you!
In 1997 Kids Konnected became it's own non-profit corporation to better facilitate growth. Jon says, "The success of a program lies in the tears of a child being wiped away by a caring friend and in the quiet 'Thanks' of a sick parent that can worry less about the emotional stress their illness has on their children." Kids helping Kids is what we're all about. Because of our "Konnection" you don't have to be alone anymore.
