Our Story

The Keira Kilbane Foundation was founded in November 2014, to honor the memory and spirit of Keira, who lost her three-year battle with Leukemia on July 22, 2014. The Keira Kilbane Foundation is focused on improving the treatment options for childhood cancer patients through three main areas: research funding, support, and providing financial assistance for families currently in treatment.


Our Partnership

The Keira Kilbane Foundation has partnered with the Huang Labs at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital to form the Keira Kilbane Cancer Discovery Fund, to further the advancement in treatment options for cancer patients. We at the foundation are excited about this partnership and look forward to a day when we can all say no more children’s lives will be lost to cancer.
