About the foundation:

The Stephanie Vest Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families who are fighting cancer by giving hope in a time of need.


Stephanie Krider Vest was only 34 when she lost her courageous battle with cancer. After struggling for months with a lingering, undiagnosed illness, it was determined that she was suffering from a rare form of cancer called Gamma Delta Lymphoma. She received this diagnosis in August of 2008, a few weeks after giving birth to her third child.


A foundation was created in her name to offer support to other families dealing with a similar cancer crisis. Since the inception of the foundation, many families have received financial grants in the Kansas City area.


With 100% of proceeds benefitting local families, the Stephanie Vest Foundation is powered by a volunteer board, who dedicate countless hours to helping local families.
