Kaely’s Kindness was founded after Kaely Kwitek was diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma.
Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) is a relatively uncommon type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) that arises from T-cells. T-cells are a type of immune cells that protect the body from infections.
Kaely is a 16 year old high school junior who is a varsity cheerleader.
As Kaely embraced her diagnosis and moved along her journey she found minimal resources to assist her in dealing with being a teen living with cancer.
This foundation was started for teenage girls like Kaely.
to provide acts of kindness to teens girls touched by cancer by assisting them with their emotional, physical, and practical needs. Acts of kindness include: gifts to teens, make over's, support groups and social events to increase socialization for teen girls touched by cancer.
What We Do
Kaely’s Kindness Foundation is focused on providing resources for teens living with cancer. Because they deserve the very best we can give.
