When I thought there was no hope…when I thought we were going to lose our house…on top of that I’m trying to fight…they were like angels, they walked in my house, they listened and were committed to helping me get through this.”

What Makes The Stephanie Vest Foundation so Different?

We are not curing cancer; our goal is more basic: We are keeping people in their home, with the utilities on, while they go through treatment.

The Stephanie Vest Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. We offer financial and emotional support to parents facing a cancer crisis. Proceeds from fundraisers benefit Kansas City metro cancer patients and their families.

Vison:

The Stephanie Vest Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families who are fighting cancer by giving hope in a time of need.

Mission:

  • To uncover God’s amazing grace despite the tragedy of cancer in young people.
  • To create a spirit of community by paying-it-forward to families in need.
  • To offer resources, both financial and emotional, to parents facing a personal cancer crisis.
  • To promote public awareness of the pervasiveness of cancer in our world today.
  • To support those who offer care and comfort to patients fighting cancer.
  • To honor all who have lost their battle with this disease.

They All Matter

Our organization helps all types of cancer patients. Men and women are both eligible for grants, as we do not focus on just one type of illness. Unfortunately, cancer does not discriminate, and we are here to help no matter what cancer battle you are facing.

Hear the Heart Behind the Foundation

When you hear the word cancer….it changes everything. They understand the emotions that are involved so there’s already a connection.
