Rainbows for Kids celebrates it’s 20th Anniversary in 2019. We had our first party in 1999 at Cardinal Glennon Hospital and incorporated into a charity in January of 2000. We exist to help families of children with cancer as well as other families going through a tough time due to health concerns.
We Are All Volunteers: No one gets paid, no building to pay rent on. All donations go to programs for the kids.
Thank you to our volunteers:

Elmo and Anna Heins Smith Scholarship Fund of Rainbows for Kids
This scholarship was started by the Bosch family of St. Louis. Kathy and Tim Bosch and their children Matthew and David Bosch wanted to honor their parents/grandparents as education was very important to them. The Bosches established the scholarship fund for children who have been in treatment for cancer (or other serious disease) and who participated in Rainbows for Kids events in 2015. To contribute to this scholarship fund please contact Kathy Bosch by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
THERE IS SO MUCH HOPE FOR CANCER PATIENTS
This is Mikey Loncaric– He is healthy, and happy– and judging by this picture, he’s smart too. He is in college and his mom sends word that he’s doing well. He is a success story. During the time he had cancer, Mikey and his mom Patricia attended our activities and he always kept a positive attitude.
We want you to know that while some of our children have gained their angel wings, there are a good number who are growing up and living normal lives. It is due in part to the many who didn’t make it but tried experimental treatment– that ended up helping future patients.
Thank you to all who donate to or volunteer with Rainbows for Kids. You help children like Mikey have fun activities and meet friends when going through a tough time having cancer. You also help people like his mom have something to do to help her along the way during the long and terrible time that is cancer. And now we can all be proud of Mikey– he’s going for his masters degree.
“I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for me in the past. You and Rainbows for Kids are one of the reasons I am here today and one of the reasons I feel I made it through cancer. (During that time) I lost a few friends (to cancer) and it was hard for me to open up. I think about my friends everyday and it help fuels my work in the lab at Southeast Missouri State University, where I just graduated with my bachelor in chemistry. I am now pursuing my master in engineering physics there and hope I can make a difference in the cancer research i am currently working on.”
