Cancer Kickin' Critters

Cancer Kickin' Critters is a not-for-profit organization created by a kid for kids to bring comfort to children in the hospital fighting cancer. We hand-make stuffed toys and create kits for patients to create their own stuffed animals and donate them to Children's National Health System. These toys are delivered to children with cancer, especially those children staying in the hospital for an extended period.
