Moved by their mother’s diagnosis, the girls wanted so badly to help that they transformed one of their most beloved hobbies, theatre, into an entity that could fight cancer. After getting their footing, the sisters soon learned more about this ubiquitous disease and the prevalence of it even in children. Thus, the organization Kids Acting Against Cancer that targeted specifically pediatric cancer was born. The realization of the Montgomery girls’ dream began in the basement of their Indian Hills home with a ragtag production of Annie and a cast of fifteen children aged seven to twelve. This Annie performance, which would be the first of five stretching through 2004, raised a humble $200, all of which was donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
