Gold Rush Cure Foundation

Pot of Gold Program

We’re Helping Kids Fighting Cancer…

Gold Rush Cure is in the childhood cancer fight.  A 501 (c)(3) organization that started in California with chapters nationwide, we are helping support childhood cancer families with our Pot of Gold Program

Join the Cause to Support Our Heroes

In our country more children are lost to cancer than any other disease.  This is more than many other childhood diseases combined.

Gold Rush Cure delivers the Pot of Gold to children with cancer all over the US.  It is a unique opportunity to show our support and care while bringing smiles to their faces during a very difficult journey.

POT OF GOLD PROGRAM

A Gift Program for Children With Cancer

We fight the battle against Childhood Cancer on a one-to-one basis through our Pot of Gold.  Pot of Gold focuses on both the child and the family, ensuring that both have the materials they need in this trying time. The children have contents related to their interests, while the parents receive items which improve their quality of life and ability to care for their children.

How the Pot of Gold Program Works

Connect With the Family

Through our partnership with the Children’s Hospital team we connect with the family in need.  Referrals are the fastest way to deliver a Pot of Gold.

Learn About their Interests

We reach out to the family and ask about the child, their interests, needs, and hobbies.  Every Pot of Gold is customized and purchased just for them.

Deliver A Pot of Gold

A Gold Rush Cure Foundation representative will deliver the Pot of Gold to the child and the family.  We love this step the most.

Today is the anniversary that Gary and I were told “Your child has cancer” and Christian was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of leukemia the day after his 13th birthday. Our lives were changed forever that day. Over the next 20 months, Christian endured 16+ months in the hospital, 2 bone marrow transplants, 3 relapses, surgeries, tons of chemo, radiation, over 50 bone marrow aspirates, hundreds of transfusions, months of isolation, acute Graft vs. Host disease, liver failure, etc. As horrific as this was, he endured it all with the courage of a faithful warrior! My quiet son fought for his life! Every day I was amazed at what his poor body had to withstand, yet he continued to get up and fight on because he had such a strong will to live. It saddened Christian that he had to go through all of this, yet he never complained…he prayed a lot! Christian inspired so many people. I am so blessed to have one of my biggest inspirations in my lift be my child!
There are so many other amazing kids battling cancer just like Christian did. The non-profit foundation Gary and I founded (Gold Rush Cure Foundation) focuses on bringing joy and encouragement to kids battling cancer through our Pot of Gold program, while also advocating for childhood cancer on a legislative level. Please visit and “Like” our Gold Rush Cure Foundation FB page, follow our Instagram page, share this post, and consider donating to our all-volunteer 501c3 foundation (www.goldrushcure.org). We celebrate the life and legacy of not only Christian, but the many other kids who have also had cancer by helping the kids currently battling it.
“A HEALTHY CHILD HAS MANY WISHES! A SICK CHILD HAS ONE!”

Below is the post from the mom (Donnikah Khamo) of one of Gold Rush Cure Foundation's very special heroes named Kara who earned her angel wings yesterday. My heart aches for this sweet family. Please keep them in your prayers🙏🏻❤

It's been a day since you obeyed Jesus' command to come home. We're left here on earth with pain and that is OK because this life, this suffering is SO brief compared to #eternity in Paradise. Thank you Kara for all that you've taught us. If I can ask for one more favor, please...ask Papa God to hold your brother Robbie tightly. Ask Him for comfort and peace, and the same understanding your dad and I have knowing that you are FREE! He misses you so much. I know rob puts on a face that everything is alright because that's what older siblings do...but i feel his hurt, I see his sorrow, and I know only the Lord can give him what he so desperately needs. We love you Kara...our warrior princess. 🙏🕇🤔🎗💜💛 #liveingoodness #inlightofeternity #bekarageous #siblingbond

You have allowed me to suffer much hardship, but you will restore me to life again and lift me up from the depths of the earth. Psalm 71:20 NLT
