Leadership

Over the past 6 years UKANDU has grown from one full-time employee to four full-time staff members.

We are thankful to have over 200 dedicated and committed volunteers who work closely with our full time staff to plan and execute year-round programming for families impacted by childhood and adolecent cancer.
