What up, Get Up Nation? My name is Ben Biddick, the Host of the Get Up Nation Podcast and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball Player and CEO of Lurong Living, Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with Kasie Lynn, the Founder and CEO of Kasie Helps Kidz www.khkidz.org, a non-profit organization dedicated to children fighting cancer. She is a 2 time childhood cancer survivor who has taken her experiences as a child survivor and created an organization that strives to continuously provide children and their guardians with a strong support system during and after their battle against cancer. Her organization focuses on lifting the spirits of those currently undergoing treatments by providing them with teddy bears, pizza, and a movie night in the hospital. Kasie also facilitates other events where child cancer survivors can connect with peers to experience the strength and resilience that is generated by spending time with others who are facing similar challenges. In 2013, Kasie created the Kasie Helpz Kidz Financial Assistance Program which assists families with up to $500 per year in reimbursement for co-pays, medications, and travel expenses during their child’s battle with cancer. I am honored that she took time to share her journey with Get Up Nation.
