Kier's Kidz helps children, adolescents, and young adults (19 to 30 years) with cancer, and their families. We help underwrite pediatric cancer research, and we are proud to work with Kier’s Kidz at Rutgers and our High School Advisors to involve young people in philanthropy and in learning about cancer patients and cancer. We helping to make all cancers – especially, childhood cancers – illnesses of the past.
Kier's Kidz is Kiersten Hickman-Perfetti's legacy of love and hope for young adults, adolescents and kids with cancer. As such, we at Kier’s Kidz keep the spirit of Kiersten alive in all that we do for the children and the young people we help.
Each member of our all-volunteer Board has a deep and abiding interest in helping young adults, adolescents and children with cancer and their families. Each of us has been affected by the cancer of someone we love. We are committed to helping others in their battles. No Board member or volunteer is paid. We’re also working to help researchers find cancer cures and to raise pediatric cancer awareness.
