Jermaine's Favorite Warrior

Jermaine may only be 10 years old, but he is fighting a battle against leukemia like a warrior.  Kellsie’s Hope Foundation is working on granting Jermaine’s wish to meet Steph Curry from the Golden State Warriors, but their NBA playoff schedule is making it difficult to reach him. Jermaine’s wish was too important to put on hold, so Kellsie’s Hope Foundation made sure everyone knew that Jermaine was Steph Curry’s biggest fan.  Jermaine can cheer for Steph and the Golden State Warriors from his decorated hospital room while wearing a Steph Curry jersey, shorts, socks, t-shirt, flip flops, blanket and with a ball.  The Golden State Warriors provided an autographed picture of Steph, a dog tag necklace, a t-shirt and a Kevin Durrant bobblehead.   


Thank you to everyone who supports Kellsie’s Hope Foundation. Your contributions helped put a smile on Jermaine’s face and helped him to forget about his battle against leukemia.    


Rapper Trenton

Rapper Trenton was overwhelmed with excitement and gratitude when he found his wish for a recording studio had been granted by Kellsie’s Hope Foundation. In April, 20 year old Trenton returned from his routine clinic appointment and was escorted to a room that was set up with lights, a mixer, a microphone stand and speakers.  Everything a future rapper needs!  Trenton was truly speechless, but his tears of joy said it all!! 

Thanks to all of your support and donations, Trenton was able to leave his brain cancer behind him for awhile and focus on his future as a rapper.  Without you, dreams like Trenton’s would not be possible.


Scholarship Winner Michaela

Kellsie's Hope Foundation annually awards a scholarship to a high school senior who has a goal to become a nurse and demonstrates Kellsie's passion for others and her giving spirit. Kellsie’s Hope Foundation is proud to introduce you to our newest nursing scholarship winner, Michaela Jolliff.  Out of the essays submitted, Michaela’s passion for nursing stood out as she wrote about realizing her dream to become a nurse started when she was a child.  At just 8 years old, Michaela watched a YouTube video of a little girl who had cancer.  The video touched her heart and has continued to motivate her to enter the medical field with a drive to cure all children with cancer. In her essay, Michaela shared her personal story about the impact cancer has had on her own family and how it has contributed to her desire to become a nurse.  Michaela’s extra curricular and volunteer activities reflect her passion to help people and make a difference: Health Occupations Student of America, Key Club, Student Council, Friends for Life, Kahok Strong, Pep Club, Special Olympics and Kellsie’s Hope Foundation.  Congratulations Michaela!  We wish you success on your journey to become a nurse and to cure cancer!
Many thanks to everyone who helps Kellsie's Hope contribute to the success of individuals who carry Kellsie's passion.
