Rainbows for Kids, a 501 (c)(3) charity for families of children with cancer was started in 2000 by our family. No paid employees so all donations go towards the fun events for the families. If there is any way we can use this website to bring attention to the need for a cure for childhood cancer and to help these families, we will do that. We appreciate your prayers for the families and for a cure for cancer.
At Rainbows for Kids, they don’t focus on what the children can’t do– we focus on what they CAN do. All kids just want to have a childhood and be carefree and have fun. Rainbows for Kids provides fun activities for the entire family.
The kids are at all stages of their medical treatments. Some are in the midst of it, some are finished with it and some have developed other medical situations due to the treatments they have taken.
Besides the children who have cancer or other serious diseases, their siblings are welcome to every activity and all the kids are treated the same.
The activities also provide a time for the parents to have friendships with others who are in the same situation that they were.
Thank You to the Muny!
The Muny’s Community Grant allows us to invite our families to pick the shows they want to see. As you can see this family was excited to be able to see The Wiz.
Every year we put on a big baseball team and All-Star game for the kids. They get to be normal kids on a summer ball team. Sometimes Cardinals players come out to play with the kids. in 2018, when we had our game at All-Star Performance, Brad Thompson came and did a selfie with the kids.
In our 2016 All-Star Game, the same week Aledmys Diaz played in the MLB All-Star Game. The then-Cardinals short stop came out and played in our Rainbows for Kids All-Star Game. He surprised the kids, pitched to them, and played catch with every child. It meant the world to the kids and their parents.
Please consider helping us help these kids.
