  1. 01
    Our mission is bring comfort to kids stuck in the hospital fighting cancer and to inform everyone about the effect childhood cancer has on the lives of children, their families and friends.
  2. 02
    Our vision is to provide every childhood cancer patient with some small comfort, get people involved knitting or crocheting toys for their local hospital, raise awareness about childhood cancer and increase funding for childhood cancer research.

    Our goals are to bring comfort to kids with cancer, to match caring critter makers with kids who need comfort, and raise awareness of childhood cancers to accelerate treatment and ultimately, find a cure.
Cancer Kickin' Critters is a nonprofit organization created by a kid for kids to bring comfort to children in the hospital fighting cancer. We hand-make stuffed toys and create kits for patients to create their own stuffed animals and donate them to Children's National Health System, INOVA Children's Hospital and other local organizations. These toys are delivered to children with cancer, especially those children staying in the hospital for an extended period.

​We hope to provide a rewarding mission for knitters to create items of comfort for kids with cancer. Experienced knitters and crocheters can send us completed toys to bring to the hospital, or knit squares of any size that we turn into kits for cancer patients to create their own bunnies. We can also connect crafters with their local children's hospitals to spread Cancer Kickin' Critters wherever there are kids in treatment.
