Papa Ken’s House opened it doors in September 2018.
The house provides short-term accommodations for KWCS families coming to Edmonton for treatment and follow-up appointments. Families who live 2 or more hours from the city will find comfortable private family suites 10 mins from the U of A Hospital in the Ritchie Area.
We are grateful to our lead donor Paddy Webb, along with two major donors the Dave Lede Family Charitable Foundation and Qualico. It truly takes a community to help our children with cancer and their families and we are so grateful to our community for all of the support.
Papa Ken’s House, is in honour of Mr. Ken Webb who was one of our early visionaries and advocates of the Kids with Cancer Society. Our dear friend said it the best, “we might not be able to take the cancer away from the child, but what we can do is make their journey a little easier.”
For families interested in taking part in the program, please contact your social worker.
