Donations and fundraising are what allows our foundation to exist and continue to run. Through generous donations and hosting fundraisers, we are able to financially help patients, as well as instill a sense of hope back into their live. We are dedicated to easing the human side of cancer. 

Applications are considered on a case-by-case basis, and determined on a number of factors including but not limited to:

  • Have a diagnosis of cancer as confirmed by an oncology health care provider
  • Currently in active treatment for melanoma or other cancers 
  • Live in MARYLAND
  • Have an immediate financial need that is interfering with treatment plan

Funds raised by Kelly’s Dream allow us to offer limited financial assistance to patients for practical living expenses that have suddenly become too difficult to pay when an individual is undergoing treatment for cancer.  We offer assistance up to $300 per year for non-medical expenses such as the cost of transportation to and from treatment, food, child care, utilities and other daily living expenses.  Families may be provided with gift cards, have expenses paid directly to the service provider or helped through one of our local partners such as Movable Feast. 



Current Events

Melanoma is a dangerous and scary type of skin cancer. Through our Check & Protect Program, we educate about the realities of melanoma, emphasizing that prevention and early detection are key. We are positive that through sharing our stories we can change the way people think about tanning beds and sun safety. 
Kelly's Dream is a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation that focuses on easing the financial and emotional strain of cancer, raising melanoma awareness, and spreading the gift of hope.

Raise Awareness. Provide Support. Bring Hope.

Financial Assistance
Cancer affects all aspects of a person's life. We are here to help patients with the financial aspect of cancer. Whether it be providing patients with food and transportation, or helping them pay an electric bill, Kelly's Dream does everything we can to help ease the financial strain of cancer.
