kids with cancer =
our heroes

Caleb's Crusade supports kids fighting cancer and their families through direct patient assistance grants and advocacy.  

What We Do

Caleb’s Crusade continues to grow and prosper as we celebrate 4 years of serving children and their families with childhood cancer.  We have helped many families primarily in Southwest Florida with the financial challenges that come with their child being diagnosed with cancer. We also aim to raise awareness for childhood cancer which includes advocating for children with cancer both locally and in our nations capitol.  We are particularly tenacious in making sure children have a voice in the competition for research dollars, and we won’t give up until a cure is found.

Patient & Family Support

grants to support patients

Aside from grants, we offer direct bill pay for utilities, phone, car payments, car repairs/maintenance, mortgage/rent payments, groceries, gas, minor medical equipment needs, necessary furniture, spending money for trips (which allows families to make irreplaceable memories) travel for treatment and more.

Awareness & Advocacy

prioritize our kids

Advocacy is important to us. Kids like Caleb don’t get a chance to let their voice be heard among those who can enact positive change for children with cancer. Through advocacy programs we can influence change and help encourage increases in research spending, standard of care policy, and better treatments for childhood cancer.

Fundraising Events

support our foundation

We have events year-round to support our organization and come out and have fun in South Florida!  We are the beneficiary of several events that include Bacon Jam, Taco Fest, and more all supported by local media partners and more.  Come out and volunteer to support us.

     caleb loved superheroes - our own spiderman     

Caleb’s hero was Spiderman and in his young mind he was a future superhero sidekick hoping that all the transfusions, chemo and radiation would all help him be able to spin webs like the man himself. They would call his blood his “spidey” juice and being that Leukemia was a blood cancer all this treatment was to get his “spidey” juice to work correctly again. Throughout treatment Caleb was happy, he always had a smile on his face.  Caleb’s treatment failed him, sadly after 100 days when the family returned to Florida, Caleb relapsed.

About us

We also aim to raise awareness for childhood cancer which includes advocating for children with cancer both locally and in our nations capitol.  We are particularly tenacious in making sure children have a voice in the competition for research dollars, and we won’t give up until a cure is found.

We support children fighting all types of childhood cancer.

As leaders of the foundation Rob and Monique make themselves available to help navigate the challenges with the experience and the resources that they have. They also have connected many families with other organizations and resources throughout the country in hopes to fill all the voids that our families face. We like to say if we cannot fill a need ourselves we will do everything we can to connect the families we support with the resources that are out there. Being this active allows Rob and Monique to offer their emotional support as well. We are available around the clock to our families for just about any need or support that they may need.


Aside from grants, we offer direct bill pay for utilities, phone, car payments, car repairs/maintenance, mortgage/rent payments, groceries, gas, minor medical equipment needs, necessary furniture, spending money for trips (which allows families to make irreplaceable memories) travel for treatment and an occasional gift to cheer up our kiddos or their siblings.  We have also gifted some electronics based on unique situations.  We do not pay medical bills.
