The Kuykenstrong Foundation mission is to support children suffering from pediatric cancer and their families. Founded in memory of former Major League Soccer player Shawn Kuykendall, Kuykenstrong strives to honor Shawn’s legacy and love of the beautiful game and go beyond finances in our support of those fighting cancer.
Partnering with Georgetown University Hospital, Kuykenstrong works with Dr. Aziza T. Shad, Chief of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology to support their patients, families, and doctors. Georgetown University is on the cutting edge of cancer research and offers some of the most comprehensive treatment in the nation. Such inclusive care is made possible by the support and funding of foundations like Kuykenstrong.
Our staff has organized visits to Georgetown to spend with the patients and their families, providing comfort and resources. These visits would not be possible without the generosity of our donors.
Thank you for visiting and stay Kuykenstrong.
