Starting at a kitchen table in 1994, we have grown to become a major advocate for childhood cancer patients and their families in the area.

A Mother's Kiss was formed in 1994 by Eileen and Guy Eger of Long Island, NY. 

That year, after their son Kevin succumbed to cancer following a long and courageous battle, Eileen and Guy realized that through the treatment process (and in many cases, afterwards) the families of childhood cancer patients must endure financial and emotional hardships which are not recognized by the general public, employers, and insurance companies.  Family and friends whose support would otherwise be an important part of the healing process, often are not sure how to approach their fallen family members or friends.  It is difficult when a child so close to them has suddenly become very sick.

 

It was the Egers' vision that no family should have to endure these hardships alone.  It is for that reason that A Mother's Kiss was formed. Since that time, the Egers have surrounded themselves with some of the most dedicated Board Members, Officers, and Volunteers available.

 

By eliminating some of the stress in the lives of these emotionally and financially challenged families, we allow them to concentrate on what is really important - making sure that their beloved child gets better.
