More about Kids Kicking Cancer:
Founded in 1999 in Detroit, Michigan by a black belt father who lost his first child to leukemia at the young age of two years old, Kids Kicking Cancer addresses the unique needs of children faced with life-threatening illness. Since then, programs have grown to help over 3500 children throughout the USA, Canada, Italy, Israel and now South Africa. Specially trained Black Belt martial artists teach the mind-body techniques of martial arts instruction, breath work and meditation, as well as traditional (but zero contact) martial arts techniques to empower children to move beyond the pain and discomfort of disease. Children learn that “pain is a message they don’t have to listen to”…they can breathe in amazing healing energy (chi) and push out their pain, fear and stress and empower them with a sense of Power, Peace and Purpose. Siblings are also welcome to participate and it’s all at no cost to the families.
Since 2012, Kids Kicking Cancer Canada has been reducing pain and empowering Canadian children, inpatient and outpatient, at Children’s Hospital of Western Ontario and in their various community programs in the London, Ontario and Windsor, Ontario areas.
