In memory of Ojetta V. Holt-Shoffner

“When you’re that young, you don’t understand what cancer is, what it does, or why people are sad and upset.”

Torry Holt was 10 and his younger brother Terrence was six when their mother Ojetta was diagnosed with lymphoma. After she passed away, they made a commitment to help children who have a parent or guardian with cancer. The Holt Brothers Foundation was founded to deliver on that promise.

The Foundation supports KidsCAN!, an educational and peer support program for kids, and Camp Kesem, a sleep-away camp for children ages 6–16 who have a parent with cancer.

Programs are funded by sponsors and partners who take part in the Foundation’s fundraising events. You can help the cause by supporting our fundraising events – the Holt Brothers Playoff Party, our Flag Football / Corporate Team Building Tournament, or “An Intimate Evening of Music.” You can also join our team by making a donation. It’s all for the kids!
