Just Keep Smiling

Sharing hope with children in medical crisis.

The Just Keep Smiling Foundation is a non-profit organization that seeks to assist families with critically ill children. We strive to do so by providing financial aid for immediate needs, offering emotional support based on personal knowledge of a child’s serious illness or death, and sharing spiritual insight that conveys the solace, grace and strength found in God.

No one knows when tragedy will strike. Challenges, pain, and suffering do not discriminate. Sometimes you can see it coming. Other times it arrives unannounced, and as much as you think you are prepared, there is always a burden someone else can lift. As trite as it sounds, we understand. We’ve been there ourselves. So we established the Just Keep Smiling Foundation to focus our energies on relieving some of the financial burdens for families with critically ill children and on offering emotional and spiritual comfort.

Our assistance comes in the form of financial aid for often-overlooked immediate needs. As it happens, we also offer more—like emotional support rooted in first-hand experience and spiritual insight that conveys peace, comfort, and strength found in God.
