An amazing organization doing great things for children with cancer.

This week, LKNConnect’s Margi Kyle and I visited Cool Kids Clubhouse to find out more about their mission and how they are helping the children of Lake Norman.

How it started —

In December 2019, the Cool Kids Clubhouse opened, named in honor of Dan Jansen, Cool Kids Board Member and 1994 Olympic gold medalist speed skater. Their goal is to improve their quality of life and reduce the social isolation, sadness, and academic loss children experience with a cancer diagnosis.

Free programs

The Clubhouse hosts a variety of FREE programs that directly benefit the child with cancer, their siblings, and their parents and provide much needed emotional support. To learn more, click here to visit their website.
