Kacey Lynn was a five year old girl who battled cancer for four and a half years. Tragically, Kacey Lynn lost her battle and died at McMaster Hospital in June, 1988. The financial hardship this illness placed on the family highlighted the need for a program to help cover some of the costs incurred as a result of childhood illnesses.
In 1995 a Trust Fund was established in Kacey-Lynn's name to assist her family and other low income families in Welland, Port Colborne and Pelham.This program has expanded and now families with sick or disabled children in all other areas in the Niagara Region can receive assistance.
