This charity is near and dear to my heart. I’ve been a volunteer for ten years and a board member for two, and as it happens, I am being honored with the Sheila Peterson Award this year. The organization has an amazing and unique mission.

Friends of Karen believes that families can remain stable and functioning even while caring for a child with cancer or a life-threatening illness. This belief fuels our passion to carefully match a family with one of our social workers who will serve as a personal advocate, ensuring that they get financial, emotional and practical support; and enabling families to remain stable, empowered to cope and functioning during their health crisis.

Would you join us in our personal advocacy to stabilize families across the tri- state area who are caring for a child with cancer or life-threatening illness?
