The Sadie Keller Foundation is a philanthropic foundation aimed at supporting and enabling people fighting childhood cancer. The foundation offers genuine care for the patients and families while battling the disease.
The Sadie Keller Foundation was formed by a 10-year-old girl who survived the disease. Sadie Keller was found to have Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when she was seven years old. Her survival of the disease inspired her to form a foundation that acts as a pillar for the patients like her. For three years after being diagnosed with the disease, Sadie underwent a series of injections, chemotherapy, and complex side effects of the disease. She missed out on a more significant part of her childhood and education. The condition denied her the chance to have fun and to enjoy life as a normal kid.
Sadie started sharing her journey on battling the disease as a child two months after diagnosis. She did this to help fellow kids undergoing the same hardship to reduce their fear and give a better insight into the experience. Through her videos, Sadie impacted many lives and was a source of inspiration and strength to many. She joined forces worth The Truth 365 in a quest to help fund research on childhood cancer.
With time, Sadie’s platform expanded thanks to forming partnerships with other organizations with similar interests. Her foundation supports patients and families, creating awareness of pediatric cancer and advocates for increased research on the disease. She has attended forums and made a public speech on the same topic. The Sadie Keller Foundation has received support from different sources to help in its mission to make a difference.
