Volunteer Spotlight: Lou and Sue Kinkle

Written on February 19, 2021

Lou and Sue Kinkle have been volunteering for Children’s Cancer Partners for almost five years. Lou and Sue assist with families in the Myrtle Beach area as volunteer Family Advocates. The couple, with a heart of gold for our families and children, delivers Gift in Kind supplies to families in the Myrtle Beach area and can be seen at almost every CCP event.

Lou and Sue have always had a heart for children with cancer, knowing families in their home state of New Jersey who lost the battle with cancer. Shortly after moving to South Carolina, Lou became a member of the North Myrtle Beach Optimist Club. The club was searching for local childhood cancer organizations to support.  

John Grover, member of the Grand Strand Optimist Club shared the vision of Children’s Security Blanket, now Children’s Cancer Partners, with the club. North Myrtle Beach Optimist Club members went to Columbia, SC to meet with Executive Director Laura Allen. In Lou’s words, “the rest is history.” 

It’s difficult for Lou and Sue to pick just one favorite event in which they volunteer. “We love every aspect of CCP from Camp Victory (where Sue broke her ankle Zip Lining) to the Christmas parties, to meeting our families while delivering Gifts in Kind supplies,” states Lou.  

We’re so grateful for Lou and Sue!! Thank you for all you do for our children! If you’re interested in volunteering for CCP, contact us at [email protected]rg.
