The mission of the Life's a Snap Foundation is to provide financial assistance and services to establish programs, which benefit children with serious or life-threatening illnesses

After establishing several programs in the New Orleans area, Kevin and Kristen, who are both from the Cleveland, Ohio suburb of Westlake, felt the need to bring similar programs to their "hometown."

In addition to this year's support of the MetroHealth Medical Center and the American Cancer Society, the Foundation continues their support of the "Imagine-a-Space" project of the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital. The "Imagine-a-Space" project offers children with serious or life-threatening illnesses the "gift" of choosing a theme of their choice to decorate their rooms at home or in the hospital.
