Chelsea Hicks was an amazing little girl who loved life. In April 2007, Chelsea was diagnosed with Stage IV Wilms’ tumor cancer, involving her right kidney, lymph nodes and lungs. Chelsea loved to dress up, have tea parties and parades while on the oncology floor. On February 20, 2009, Chelsea lost her courageous battle. She was only five years old. We will forever be grateful for the hours of fun and play that she inspired with her impish grin and infectious laughter. She will never be forgotten and we honor her by helping other kids fighting serious illnesses with The Chelsea Hicks Foundation and Chelsea’s Closet program.
“When serious illness impacts a young person’s childhood and a family’s well-being, CHF’s creative programs provide hope, support and opportunities to share special moments together and create memories to last a lifetime.”
