Founded in 2011, cancer kiss my cooley® is a Huntley, IL based 501(c)3 charitable organization. CKMC was created in memory of Carter Kettner. At age 5, he was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer. The organization was named after a phrase that Carter often said. He called his backside his “cooley”, which is Italian slang for “rear end”. He would sing “cancer kiss my cooley!” while pointing to his backside. After Carter earned his angel wings, the phrase took on a new meaning. We tell cancer to “KISS IT”! Live your lives with cancer; but fight, make memories, and keep HOPE. CKMC is lead and operated by ten unpaid Board
A KISS of HOPE® from CKMC is something very special. It is a personal experience, customized to each child referred to us. It can be delivered in many ways such as a family trip, medical bill assistance, meeting their favorite idol or superhero, or other means to support the child’s emotional and physical wellness. Our mission - to create special moments and lasting memories for families living with pediatric brain tumors through our KISS of HOPE program.
