Shane Boyle is a recipient of up to a $5000 one year scholarship award through the Kisses for Kyle Foundation! Many thanks to Univest Financial for their generous sponsorship! We are very honored to award this scholarship to Shane as he begins his education to help children facing cancer in a career as a Pediatric Oncology Nurse!!!
"In November 2013, at the age of 11, I began having headaches, nausea and blurred vision. I was admitted to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and diagnosed with two malignant brain tumors. Being diagnosed with cancer at such a young age, I understand all too well what it is like to face a life threatening illness. My experience has made me very empathetic to those facing illness and disease. I have found strengths in all the challenges I have faced and my experience has taught me resiliency and compassion.
I want to make an impact in the lives of children facing cancer by helping them have a fighting chance. I can understand what they are going through physically and emotionally and can provide them with a sense of comfort. I feel I can make a connection with children facing cancer by providing them with the utmost care, empathy, compassion and helping them cope.
My dream job was to become a math teacher. I loved math and excelled in the subject. After seeing how my nurses helped me and how grateful I was for the care they gave me, it made me realize how rewarding the job of a pediatric nurse would be. That was when my dream of becoming a math teacher changed. I realized becoming a pediatric nurse was my destiny. Going through my own experience with cancer, I realized how many children are affected by cancer. The experience makes you want to support others because you know what it is like to be on the other side. My perception of life has changed and I never take anything for granted. Even though I had cancer, I do not let it define me or deter me from my goals. Life can continue after cancer and you can do anything you set your mind to.
Six years ago I faced the unimaginable, but in 4 months I will enter college to pursue a Bachelor in Nursing degree. Upon graduation, I want to obtain a full time job and specialize in pediatric oncology. In time, I hope to continue my education by obtaining a Master's degree." ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations!!! Thanks for sharing your story. Our 12 year old grandson is a cancer survivor (diagnosed at age 2 1/2, bone marrow transplant 2 years later) I wish you all the best. Those pediatric cancer nurses are angels in disguise. You will be awesome 🌟4 weeks ago · 1
Our friend Ryder is having brain surgery this Thursday. Please send very positive thoughts and prayers in this post for a complete success (if you care to send a physical card, please let us know). Ryder has not only faced a cancer diagnosis at a young age, he has a fantastic initiative to help many newly diagnosed children. We had the honor and privilege of meeting Ryder and his family to work together in helping families. Please read the following from his wonderful Mom Stacey.
Ryder is having brain surgery THURSDAY to remove vessels that are bleeding in his brain...a side effect of the radiation. It's a craniotomy and he will be awake for most of it. I can't imagine having to face this as an adult...but at 13 it's unthinkable. I know he would appreciate cards and well wishes if you have the time. He will be in the hospital 3 days. We are trying to remain strong but it's tough. Please pray he wakes up with no motor deficits and no language problems. ... See MoreSee Less

Meet Jaxson! Jaxson and his mom received their LYM Face Masks through the Kisses For Kyle Foundation, an amazing organization which helps provide a variety of services to families fighting childhood cancer in the Delaware Valley. “Jaxson was diagnosed with ATRT Brain Cancer in June 2015, shortly after his 1st birthday. He completed an intense protocol that included high dose chemotherapy and focal proton radiation. One and a half years later, he was declared No Evidence of Disease! A little over 3 years after completing treatment, during a routine scan, we found out that his cancer had returned. Jaxson has already completed 2 rounds of high dose chemotherapy and started 30 days of full cranial spinal radiation. When radiation is complete, Jaxson will have a little break then he will start more high dose chemotherapy with stem cell transplant. He will spend 4-6 weeks at a time in the hospital for 3 rounds but we know he will beat this monster once again! Thank you for all you do Love Your Melon!" - Jaxson’s Mother

Jayden's Mom Andrea “Thank you so much for bringing our families together. Jayden and Ciarlo met at a K4K event and hit it off instantly. They’ve remained close even during this pandemic. They are currently working on a story together via Facebook Messenger Kids. They are crime fighting brothers. K4K has really helped these guys forget about pediatric cancer even if it’s just for a little while. I will forever be grateful to you. ♥️🐞”
Ciarlo's Dad Kenny "I’ve had the privilege of overhearing these two buddies plan and shoot a movie online for hours at a time. Just two friends not seeing disability, pandemics, or race. Just two crime fighting brothers sticking up for their fellow man and justice. I always thought my son’s creativity was special, but he found his special match with sweet Jayden ❤️❤️❤️" ...
