ast year it was a new program with a lot of
enthusiasm and a lot of hope.
Now, Kids Kicking Cancer (KKC) is
about to make its mark out of state, with a
branch being created at Memorial Sloan Kettering
Cancer Center in New York and opening in 2003. •
And that's just one of the developments charted by
KKC. Founded by Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg, rabbi
emeritus of Young Israel of Southfield, who now serves
as KKC's national director, the organization aims to

help children gain control of their lives and maintain
optimism while battling cancer. Some of Rabbi
Goldberg's tools include relaxation, mental imagery
and visualization, taught through the medium of the
martial arts. The classes are available at classes at local
hospitals.
KKC is open to children of all races, ages and reli-
gions with any kind of cancer.
"The Sloan Kettering program will initiate the
beginning of serious medical research projects to
demonstrate how programs in complementary medi-
cine, such as KKC, impact pain management and dis-
ease outcome," said Dr. Susan Gardin, national pro-

The Sinai Guild and the Variety
Club children's charities recently
donated vans to Kids Kicking
Cancer, which will be used to trans-
port children and their families to
the organization's programs.
Standing in _front of one of the vans
are volunteers Sandra Jaffa, Rochelle
Lederman, Rusty. Rosman, Dr. Susan
Gardin, Alan H Kideckeh KKC
National Director Rabbi Elimelech
Goldberg, Rose Rita Goldman,
