Nashville native, Elaine Kay’s Rally journey began after she learned firsthand the impact of childhood cancer research. When her 11-year-old son, James, was diagnosed with a rare cancer, it was a clinical trial that saved his life. Now, a national protocol, this research is saving lives and giving hope to children battling cancer.

Elaine knew she wanted to do more, so in 2010 she began Rally Tennessee to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research. Rally Tennessee has been an integral part of raising more than $29.4 million dollars to fund childhood cancer research. Rally Tennessee serves families all over the state of Tennessee, including locally those who are treated at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital and Centennial Children’s Hospital.

Led by a hardworking team and supported by a Tennessee Leadership Advisory Board, Rally Young Professionals group, and many community supporters and influential spokespeople, Rally Tennessee works together to grow and fulfill Rally’s mission throughout Tennessee. Collectively, this allows for additional resources to stay local, providing families in the Tennessee communities the ability to receive assisted funding through the Rally Tennessee Family Emergency Fund.
