In 2013, I founded the Gas4Katie Cancer Foundation to support my neighbor and friend, Katie Hawley, who was battling a form of cancer called Neuroblastoma. Katie’s parents had to drive her back and forth from Orange County to LA almost every day for her chemotherapy treatments. I wanted to do something to help so I thought to raise money in the form of gas cards to help ease some of the burden for their family. Fortunately, Katie is now 14 and has no evidence of disease! In honor of Katie being in remission, I am now expanding my foundation to help other local families here in Orange County who are also suffering from Pediatric Cancer.  Your generous donations will go directly to help these families.  Here are their stories:





On behalf of Scarlette, Saylor and Niko, I want to thank you very much for your support!  With your help, we can make a difference here in Orange County in the lives of these families who unfortunately are faced with this terrible disease!
