Killian Loved sports.


Five-year-old Killian Owen loved sports — especially baseball, basketball and swimming. He enjoyed playing (and competing!) with his brothers.

On December 10, 1999, Killian was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Despite the best efforts of those caring for Killian, and his own determination, the disease took his life on July 27, 2003.

He was nine.

We work in Killian's memory for children who need a cure.

We will fund cures.
We will find cures.

children lose their lives to cancer each year.

That is the sad truth.

...but there is hope.

We are funding cutting-edge research that will lead to better treatments with fewer harmful side effects.

We will find cures for childhood cancers in our lifetime.
