How does a healthy child get cancer?
KOASTRONG is a registered 501(c)(3) non profit organization raising funds for critical research focused on childhood cancer prevention. As the leading disease cause of death for children, more than 16,000 children will get cancer in 2022 in the US. Although substantial gains have been made in the treatment of some types of cancers over the past several decades, progress is still limited against many others. Survivors of childhood cancer may experience life long adverse effects and emotional trauma from the disease and its treatments.
KOASTRONG is dedicated to focusing research grants in the area of preventing childhood cancer. Please join us to fund crucial research to prevent all forms of childhood cancer.
KOASTRONG dreams of a tomorrow without childhood cancer.

The second annual KOASTRONG BASEBALL CAMP was held on October 15, 2022 at Campbell Little League in Campbell, California. The free baseball skills camp gave 55 youth athletes, ages 7 - 13, the opportunity to learn and practice in a fun, music filled, small baseball town environment. Campbell Police Officers Buckovic and K9 Koa were on-hand to cheer on the athletes and coaches, as well as demonstrate their skills. A raffle was held after the skills camp as a fundraiser for the Kekoa Pagán Scholarship fund which subsidizes registration fees for families in need.
KOASTRONG is dedicated to direct funding for critical research on prevention of childhood cancer. KOASTRONG's mission is to raise research funds to sponsor efforts to prevent and thereby, end childhood cancer while honoring the spirit, life, love and memory of Kekoa Pagán. KOASTRONG will work in partnership with established childhood cancer interest organizations and professionals to fund research focused on the primary prevention of childhood cancers. Our primary resources will pursue the cause of a healthy child getting cancer. We will partner and support charity organizations seeking the same answers about childhood cancer. We seek researchers who are on the cutting edge of discovery in the pediatric oncology specialty. When we prevent childhood cancer, we will end childhood cancer.
Collaboration and passion are the spirit of the KOASTRONG organization. Our team has a dream.
