Our Mission, who we are, our purpose
The mission of JohnnyKicksCancer is to cure childhood leukemia’s through awareness, research and advocacy, as well as empower and encourage patients, families and doctor’s in their fight against the number one childhood cancer.
JohnnyKicksCancer is a 501c3 founded by Mike and Julie Romano to increase research and funding specifically for childhood leukemia after they lost their 10 year-old son, Johnny, to acute myeloidcystic leukemia.
The purpose of the JohnnyKicksCancer Foundation is to give the most ‘common’ childhood cancer — leukemia — a voice, separate from adult leukemia funding, research and awareness.
Because “Common Does Not Equal Cured.”
