KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -– Through the “Take a Pop, Share a Smile” program, children battling cancer and other illnesses at The University of Kansas Health System will soon be able to access an endless supply of freezer pops.

In a partnership between Hy-Vee, The Jel Sert Company and the American Childhood Cancer Organization, the “Take a Pop, Share a Smile” program was launched at The University of Kansas Health System on Monday.
