Since 2003, the Pinky Swear Foundation has given financial and material support to children with cancer and their families. The foundation helps provide the quality of life that every child deserves.

In 2002, 8-1/2-year-old Mitch Chepokas of Chanhassen, Minnesota, was diagnosed with bone cancer. Around Christmas that year, Mitch asked for his father’s help in distributing $6,000 from Mitch’s savings account to help other families with children battling cancer.
