MEET SADIE

On February 25, 2015, at the age of 7, Sadie Keller was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. For 2 1/2 years, Sadie fought through many hard times and was out of school for her 2nd and 3rd grade years.

She received her last chemotherapy on May 26, 2017, and continues to receive monthly checkups and lab work.
Only 2 months after Sadie was diagnosed, she began making video’s about what it’s like to have cancer as a child. She did these in a closet without her parents knowing. Sadie hated to not know what to expect, so she made these videos to help other kids not be so afraid. These videos have been used on ESPN during Jimmy V week.
Sadie’s mission continued as she began working with TheTruth365 to help raise awareness for Childhood Cancer.

Out of all the money given to cancer research from the National Cancer Institute, only 4% is given to all childhood cancers. Sadie lobbies in Washington D.C. several times a year to help change this and for several Childhood Cancer Acts. She has helped lobby the passage of the Creating Hope Act, RACE for Children Act, and the STAR Act in which she was invited to the Oval Office while the President signed it into law. She is a public speaker, advocate and helps run her foundation to help thousands of Childhood Cancer fighters all over the United States.

Sadie was invited back to the White House this year to participate in a Roundtable discussion with the Vice President of the United States, about the Childhood Cancer initiative. Sadie has been seen on Inside Edition, Fox News America’s News HQ, Fox News America’s Newsroom, Fox News Varney & Co., Fox News with Dana Perino, CNN Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, and numerous local television across the country.

Sadie is also an incredible artist. She is currently 13 years old and in the 8th grade.
