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.

Join Santa and the K Club for A Night of Lights on Saturday, December 14 from 5:00-10:00 p.m. at the Carney Residence - 1308 NW 168th Street in Edmond.  See the amazing lights show, and purchase hot chocolate, cookies, and more!  All proceeds will benefit Keaton's Lego Project, which gives awesome Lego sets to local children fighting cancer.  

 

Patient families from The Jimmy Everest Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders are invited to attend the lights show and receive treats for free!  This is a great event for children with compromised immune systems as they don't have to leave the safety of their vehicles.  Patient families, please email us at kclubkindness.org to receive your "Special Visitor" ticket or pick one up the Jimmy Everest Center.  We are so excited to welcome you!!!

 

The lights show will run from December 1 through January 6 and will accept donations each night.  However, Santa's big visit with treats will only be on December 14.  Please come join us for some Christmas magic!

The K Club has been selected as the recipient of Deer Creek High School’s annual fundraiser, WWF (Wonderful Week of Fundraising) for 2020.  The students at Deer Creek High School will spend this school year fundraising for the K Club through WWF with efforts culminating March 2-6.  We are honored to have been chosen and excited that Deer Creek students will be helping us spread Keaton’s mission.  To support WWF, follow @dcstuco on Facebook and Instagram for announcements of fundraising events.
