Zoe Jerke Appointed 2014 Kans for Kids Ambassador
Eleven-year-old Zoe Jerke, Great Bend, was appointed as the 2014 Kans for Kids Ambassador during the 2014 Radiothon. Zoe was diagnosed with a neuro-endocrine tumor on her pancreas when she was 22 months old and received support from Kans for Kids. After beating cancer, Zoe has gone on to help other children in the Barton County area who have also been diagnosed with the disease. In the spirit of paying it forward and giving back, she has donated several of her birthdays to Kans for Kids by asking her friends to make a donation rather than giving her gifts. Most recently, she sold lemonade door-to-door, donating all of the funds raised to Kans for Kids.
As an ambassador, Zoe, along with Hunter Donecker, 2013 Ambassador, assist Kans for Kids with events. They also participate in presentations done by the organization, speaking about their experience with cancer. She also attends Camp Hope each summer. Acquired by Kans for Kids in 2013, the camp is held for one week each summer for children from across the state of Kansas and Western Missouri who are in treatment for cancer or in remission.
Zoe is the daughter of Chad and Kristy Jerke, Great Bend, and a 5th
grader at Holy Family School. She has three siblings, Katy, Max, and
