Ways to Give The Tom Keaveny Endowed Fund for Cancer Research

The Tom Keaveny Endowed Fund for Cancer Research was established in 2003. In September of 2002, Tom Keaveny passed away at the age of 39 of colon cancer, leaving his wife Mary and four young children. Tom had a true zest for life that will never be forgotten.

Keaveny, Tom

He served as Treasurer on the Children's Mercy hospital auxiliary of Hands & Hearts for Children. After his death, the Board of Hands & Hearts created a pediatric cancer research fund in his name at the hospital. Proceeds from the event "Celebre La Vida!" provided the initial donation for the fund. Many generous donors have continued to support the fund since then. In the spring of 2008, the first research grant was awarded to a team of investigators at Children's Mercy Hospital for a very important research project that could potentially impact children with cancer not only in the Kansas City area, but also around the world. The goal of the fund is to be able to award a research grant every year in many areas of pediatric cancer research.
