  • Kids Alive

    Kids Alive! is one of the very few organizations in the Denver area that provides support for children, ages 6-16, of parents with cancer. We are a unique, privately funded program offered at no charge to any family where a parent is dealing with a cancer diagnosis.

    Our goal is to provide a safe, helpful environment for children of cancer patients where we can:

    • Create a place for a child to be a child - to experience fun, support and continuity of life apart from catastrophic illness.
    • Facilitate a better relationship between cancer patients and their families, reducing guilt and anxiety in children.
    • Help parents interpret their children’s behavior as adaptive to the trauma in the family and improve communication in the family.
    • Develop awareness of resources for both parents and children.
    Kids Alive

    Kids Alive! is committed to supporting children and families in our community. All applications are reviewed on a first come, first served basis. We will aim to contact all individuals who apply or request information in timely manner.

    Kids Alive! is a free program made possible by the generosity of community donors, Porter Hospital and the Porter Hospital Foundation.

  • The Nora Earnest Scholarship Fund

    The Earnest Scholarship Fund provides monetary scholarships to parents dealing with cancer. With the help of this scholarship assistance, we encourage families to take a break from the realities of cancer treatment, travel to the Colorado Mountains for several peaceful days, and reconnect as a family. Through the support of our program and partners, scholarships are available for families dealing with cancer to help cover costs associated with lodging, food, travel, and entertainment during their stay in the mountains.

    Porter Hospital Foundation has devoted its efforts to raising funds for the Porter Breast Program on the Porter Adventist Hospital campus. The Porter Comprehensive Breast Cancer Care and Treatment Clinic introduces a person to their entire cancer team over the course of one day and helps them understand how each member of the team works for them.

    The Porter Hospitality House will be a home for out-of-town patients and their families to stay while undergoing treatment.
