Our Mission

At Marlee’s Smile, we are committed to changing the world for kids with cancer in two ways:

The first is to put a custom furry friend into the arms of every pediatric cancer patient.

The second is to fund targeted research of pediatric cancers so no child has to suffer as Marlee did.

Marlee's Cancer Journey

It sounds cliche, but it’s the words no parent wants to hear: your child has cancer. Marlee’s cancer journey began in April 2015 when she was diagnosed with Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, a very rare and aggressive soft tissue sarcoma. The Pack family, Bill, Shelly and big sister Meredith, would learn that Marlee’s cancer journey would be their cancer journey.
