Supporting families through the pediatric cancer journey.

In honor of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, The Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC) is kicking off the “Helping Kids is Kool” campaign to raise funds and awareness for local children diagnosed with cancer.

All the funds raised from this campaign will go to the Foundation of YRMC’s Pediatric Oncology Support Fund to provide much needed financial resources to local families facing a pediatric cancer diagnosis. The community can help in multiple ways:

Host a “Helping Kids is Kool” Kool-Aid stand.
Pick up a kit to help get you started from the Foundation office starting September 1st. Every kit includes branded signage and Kool-Aid. You can help fight childhood cancer one cup at a time!

The international awareness symbol for childhood cancer is the gold ribbon. Decorate your business, home, school, or neighborhood in gold and remind our local families that they are not alone. Donate $10 or more to the Foundation of YRMC’s Pediatric Oncology Support Fund and receive a Kool gold lightbulb.

Spread the word!
Share our giving link on your favorite social media platform(s). Post “Go Gold” or Kool-Aide stand photos (one you hosted or one you visited). Tag Yuma Regional Medical Center and use the hashtag #HelpingKidsisKool.

With your support, the Foundation of YRMC can help eligible Yuma County families by providing funds for expenses attributable to their child’s cancer diagnosis. Together, we can lessen the financial burden so that families can focus on what matters most — helping their child get well.

Visit our giving site to make a donation: Donations can also be mailed to: The Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center, 2400 S. Avenue A, Yuma, AZ 85364. Contact the Foundation of YRMC at or call 928-336-7043 to learn more.
