In June of 2007 The Kaylyn Elaine Warren Foundation was established to fulfill the dream and last wish of Kaylyn E. Warren who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on October 15, 2005 at the age of 17. Kay’s Dream was to help other kids suffering from all types of childhood cancers through awareness and by opening Kay’s Kamp - the First Oncology Camp in Delaware. At Kamp, kids battling cancer can experience some “normal” in their now not-so-normal lives.
