In 1998, Keaton's Child Cancer Alliance was established in memory of 5-year-old, Keaton Raphael, after his 9-month courageous battle with Neuroblastoma. Over the past 25 years, we have loved and supported thousands of children and families impacted by pediatric cancer.  We continue to honor Keaton's Legacy as he remains our "Hero of Heroes".

When a family hears the words, "Your child has cancer," their entire world is turned upside down and their lives forever changed.  In Northern CA, an estimated 900 children are diagnosed with cancer each year, yet few receive critical supportive services for the entire family, which often prevents them from adhering to their treatment regimens. 

Our unique, Keaton’s Family Navigator Programs provide love, compassion, and support beginning with the initial assessment of each family’s unique needs. Our vital services mitigate the adverse effects of childhood cancer through a trauma-informed approach.   

We create a resilient community of parents, cancer warriors, and siblings by offering the following services: 

Navigation to local community resources, ranging from nutrition to travel to creative solutions  

Connection with Keaton’s Family, uniting those with similar experiences through peer-to-peer support 

Collaboration with hospital and community partners, addressing every family’s unique needs  

Financial Support for basic needs, including grants, scholarships, and financial education to allow parents-guardians to focus on the health and wellbeing of their child(ren)  

Keaton's Family Navigator Programs are designed to help deliver better quality, efficient care and ensure that access to care is for all. As confirmed by our hospital partners, we are an invaluable resource, eliminating or reducing barriers to give these children battling cancer the best possible outcomes 

Together We Fight. Together We Overcome. Together We Heal. 


To support children with cancer and their families with emotional, educational, and financial support while increasing awareness and funding research toward a cure.


As the number of families referred to Keaton's Child Cancer Alliance for supportive services continues to increase each year, we anticipate the demand to serve more families in our region.

Our primary funding need is for the comprehensive, family-centered support services we offer families throughout Northern California.

Donations of gift cards, gas cards, food cards, educational games and toys, comfort items are always needed.

With a growing number of events and fundraisers, more volunteers are needed for 2024.
