ABOUT KEVIN CORDASCO
Kevin Cordasco was a very inspirational young man who was diagnosed with High Risk, Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a deadly childhood cancer, at the age of 10. He fought for nearly 7 years. Kevin willingly gave himself to experimental treatments that may have not saved his life, but paved the way for the children that will follow to have a better chance at life. While accepting the Citizen of the Year award from the City of Calabasas at 11 years old, Kevin was quoted as saying, “I hope that one day I can give back what’s been given to me and to other kids that have cancer and their families.”
