Duo Week 2021
The K Club is excited to announce that we have been named the recipient of Oklahoma Christian Academy's "Do Unto Others" (DUO) Week 2021. The amazing DUO Week Chairs joined us this summer for a Lego Dropoff at the Children's Hospital and were able to see firsthand what the K Club is doing for children in Oklahoma who are fighting cancer. We are so honored and excited to be a part of DUO Week and look forward to the upcoming events! For more information, follow DUO Week on Instagram - @ocaduoweek.
Swine Week 2021
The K Club is also excited to announce that we were chosen as the recipient of Edmond Memorial's Swine Week 2021. After getting to know the incredible STUCO members last year through the interview process, we are thrilled to work with them this year to raise funds for two exciting new projects that will showcase sweet Keaton's mission of kindness! These projects will truly impact the entire community. More details coming soon! Please support Swine Week and follow them on Instagram - @emhsswineweek.
World Kindness Day
Thank you to everyone who came out and chalked with us for World Kindness Day 2020! We chalked kind messages at 50 different locations and were even featured on the local news. We received many messages of "Thank you!" and "I really needed that!" from those who saw the artwork and many messages of "We had so much fun!!!" from our volunteers.
We appreciate everyone who made the day possible and hope you will plan to join us for World Kindness Day in 2021.
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.
