A Letter from our Board Regarding Kesem’s CEO Search

At Kesem, we have a tradition of creating moments to reflect on what inspires us to do this important work. Why We Kesem is our way of empowering our community to express what our organization, mission and impact means to each of us. We invite you to learn more about us and Why We Kesem.


We Kesem for the 5 million children who face a parent’s cancer diagnosis… Kesem is the largest national organization dedicated to supporting children impacted by a parent’s cancer, at no cost to families.

We Kesem for our passionate college student volunteers across the country who deliver Kesem’s amazing programs to campers and their families…These young women and men meet the challenge of a family’s cancer diagnosis head-on, creating a space for children to feel understood, supported, and included (and have a lot of fun doing it!).

We Kesem for our incredible, resilient, and dedicated staff… Our team believes in the power of our program and continually strives to ensure that we deliver on Kesem’s mission to support children through and beyond a parent’s cancer.

We Kesem for each other… We recognize the life-changing power of mutual support, compassion and understanding. When our camper parents, cancer survivors, and those facing the world without a loved one come together through Kesem, we share in the magic of this community and the bond it creates. 

We look forward to welcoming a new CEO who shares our values, our spirit, and our passion for the mission. 

Come Kesem with us. 

Warmest regards on behalf of the Board of Directors,

Ben Cornwell
Chair, Board of Directors
