KyMel, Inc, is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation that was established in 2015 with the goal to provide connecting experiences for families on the cancer journey.
It is the mission of KyMel, Inc. to provide connecting experiences for families on the cancer journey.
KyMel, Inc relies 100% of dedicated volunteers to run our organization and programming. We have zero paid staff. Over 150 volunteers give countless hours annually to ensure Camp Hope, Camp SIBsational and KyMel itself run smoothly. Donors can be assured that their money is going directly to help families affected by cancer.
KyMel is governed by a board of directors composed entirely of volunteers from a variety of fields. They bring experience in finance, legal, medicine, fundraising, non-profit management and more. Our board members come from Kansas, Missouri and California.
KyMel currently offers two programs. Camp Hope, a camp for youth with cancer, and Camp SIBsational, a camp for the siblings of youth with cancer. The board is always looking for new ways to support families on the cancer journey.
