November Charity: Friends of Karen

by | Nov 1, 2021 | Charity

Friends of Karen serves families with a child (newborn through age 21) who has been diagnosed with and is actively in treatment for cancer or another life-threatening illness.

We offer our services at no cost to families and regardless of race, religion, gender, national origin or cultural heritage in compliance with all federal, state and local laws and regulations.

Friends of Karen began in 1978 with one family; one child, Karen MacInnes; and one inspired woman, Sheila Petersen, who wanted to sustain her close friends through the devastating illness of their daughter. Today, we serve hundreds of families each month, and have affected the lives of 16,000 children.
