Introduction to Cancer Kids and Christmas

  • We are a community fundraiser that raise funds to provide Christmas to area cancer families, as most know cancer treatments are expensive so often takes Christmas away from these families.
  • Our founder Travis Sparks fought colon cancer in 2012 was the reason he decided he had to do something to help other families fighting this hard fight. In addition, provide them with a little normalcy in their life, at a special time of the year. 
  • Our Founder, Board of Directors, and all our volunteers give 100% of their time to serve and provide for our families.We have grown from helping one family in 2012, by raising $750.00 for that family. To 2017 and helping 14 families raising $48000.00. 
  • We started 2012 with one event; the event we held was at UFP where our founder works, his great co-workers helping him raise that first $750. We have grown an now hold six community events a year with the final event being in November.
  • We have helped 41 families over the last 6 years, from here in Giles County, all over the New River Valley, Roanoke, Martinsville, West Virginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina and have raised $106,000.00
  • Every year we are always looking for new ways to grow, raising more money so we can keep adding families each year. 
  • Here is our Criteria:
    1. One family member must have cancer; the mom, dad, child or a sibling.
    2. Family must have children. 
    3. The cancer recipient must be going through cancer treatments.
    4. 4.  Must agree to use the donation to purchase Christmas for the family. 
    5. Must agree to share their story on the Cancer Kids and Christmas FB page. 
    6.  In addition, must have a way to communicate with our founder with all updates. 

More About Us

How We're Helping

This organization began with one man's dream to help families dealing with the challenges of cancer, especially during the Christmas season. Travis, a cancer survivor himself, saw families struggling to provide for their children, and took a leap of faith and made a promise to God to use his survival to help others.  And now, with the help of the community, the organization has grown into year-round fundraisers and outreach to help families affected by cancer.
