Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation is a Santa Barbara based non-profit foundation dedicated to providing a
wide range of support for families with children suffering from cancer. The mission of the organization,
founded by Nikki Katz after being inspired by a three-year old boy diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, is to
ensure that children with cancer receive the undivided comfort of their parents during the treatment and
recovery process. The organization achieves this by providing middle to low-income families with
financial aid for rent, mortgage, utilities, and car payments, as well as other supportive services, thereby
allowing families to focus on what is truly important - their children.
How to Help:
Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is committed to assisting families
with children suffering from various forms of cancer. We provide financial assistance for life's daily
responsibilities. Our mission is clear: the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation ensures that children with
cancer recieve the undivided comfort of their parents during treatment and recovery by providing
families with financial and emotional support. Our specific objective is to defray costs such as
rent/mortgage, utilities, automobile & related transportation costs and other basic necessities.
