We would like to thank everyone for coming out this summer and supporting the Kick Cancer for Stephen Foundation. It was a beautiful weekend for soccer and no weather issues this year! Without all of your support we would not be able to do all that we do.

We have fully outfitted every room at Diamond’s Children Hospital, all of the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology rooms at Banner Hospital, all of the inpatient rooms at TMC as well as the Pediatric ER rooms at TMC.¬†Our next goal is to help complete a Theater/Performance room at Banner Hospital.

We cannot express our gratitude enough. With all your donations we are honoring Stephen’s wishes and helping all the children who have to visit Tucson area hospitals. Thank you for helping us, and for helping Kick Cancer for Stephen, because no child should have to suffer.

Big Thanks to eegee’s!!

IMG_2348As you know, the Kick Cancer for Stephen Foundation was chosen as one of three beneficiaries of eegee’s 23rd Annual Coupon Card Program. Every year, during the month of June, eegee’s conducts it’s annual coupon card program in order to financially benefit local non-profit organizations. This year’s coupon program raised over $240,000 which was divided among the chosen beneficiaries, KCFSF, Ben’s Bells and BAG IT-Fight the Fear. The Kick Cancer for Stephen Foundation was awarded over $76000.

This amazing award will help to complete another big project at the Banner Children’s-Diamond Children’s Medical Center, as well as many other projects.

“We are grateful, thankful and overwhelmed. Thanks to eegee’s and all of Tucson.” –Steve and Francie

Again, thanks to all who purchased a coupon. Think of us and Stephen as you enjoy your eegee’s throughout the year!

7th Annual Kick Cancer for Stephen Foundation 3v3 Tournament

 

Thank you all so much for participating in the 7th Annual Kick Cancer for Stephen Foundation 3v3 Tournament. It was a difficult decision to cancel the friday night portion of our tournament, but safety is always our number one concern and we cancelled it just in time before the storm hit. Saturday gave us a scare but we were able to play and everyone seemed to enjoy the evening.

We are always amazed and happy you come out to play and by doing so, support our foundation and honor Stephen’s wishes. We have more to do and will never stop believing there is a cure out there, because no child should ever have to suffer.

Thank you to all the parents, players, sponsors and everyone involved with the foundation. Without all of you, none of this would be possible. We look forward to seeing you next year on “the pitch”, spread the word and let’s make next year even bigger and better!!

Sincerely,

Francie and Steve Placencia

3v3 tournament a success in spite of weather cancellation!
