Volunteer With Us!
The 2nd Annual Keaton Barrón Charity Classic is Monday, August 31, and we need your help! It takes many volunteers to make this tournament a success, so please click here and sign up for a shift at beautiful Oak Tree Country Club in Edmond, Oklahoma.
Your volunteering will help us raise funds for local pediatric cancer research. This funding will ensure that children battling cancer in Oklahoma have access to the most current treatment options so that they can stay at Children's Hospital near their families, support systems, and the medical staff that they love.
Volunteers must be in high school or older. There is a required informational meeting on Sunday, August 23 at Oak Tree Country Club to receive instructions for tournament day. For more information, see the Sign Up Genius.
If you have additional questions, please email us at email@example.com, and we will respond within 24 hours. For more information about the Keaton Barrón Charity Classic, please visit keatonbarroncharityclassic.org.

We have extra exciting news this year! Team K Club's funds are going directly to research involving CAR-T cell therapy as treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. This was the final treatment Keaton received, and although it didn't work for him as a cure, it is a promising treatment. We are excited to directly support further research so that no child has to die from this horrible disease and no family has to lose a precious son or daughter.
Registration is now open at http://walkrun.stjude.org/teamkclub.
See you on September 19!
Keaton Lucas Barrón
How does one describe the best person he or she has ever known? Keaton Lucas was born on March 21, 2010. He was the sweetest baby - always happy, laid-back, and full of joy.
As a toddler, he was an "old soul" who loved Mickey Mouse, the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the OSU Cowboys. After a few unexplained illnesses, his parents took him to the doctor and heard the words no parent ever wants to hear, "It looks like leukemia." Keaton was rushed to OU Children's Hospital and began treatment immediately.
For three and a half years, Keaton battled this disease and successfully finished chemotherapy on December 27, 2015. However, he relapsed on March 22, 2016, and relapsed again on July 18, 2017. He fought hard, taking every medication and following every order given by his doctors who worked so hard to try and save him.
Throughout his five and a half years of chemotherapy, radiation, t-cell therapy and more, Keaton remained positive, agreeable, hilarious, and sweet. He always put others ahead of himself and fought with grace and courage, never complaining about the countless hospital and clinic visits or missing out on so many life experiences because of his illness. Keaton was a shining example of what it means to live with kindness, courage, compassion, and care for others every single day.
Keaton passed away at home on May 11, 2018. He touched many lives, taught others about faith, hope, and never giving up, and leaves a legacy that his family and friends hope to share for years to come.
Keaton’s Kindness Foundation is a 501(c)3, and all donations are tax deductible and greatly appreciated. It is our goal to continue Keaton’s mission of kindness, courage, compassion, and caring while fighting for a cure for pediatric cancer so that no child has to suffer as Keaton did and no family has to lose a precious son or daughter.
