ASBURY PARK, NJ - Kick Cancer Overboard is a local not-for-profit organization with a very simple mission: To give away free cruises to people whose lives have been affected by cancer. 

Last year KCO gave away 16 free cruises with 100 supporters and families coming along for the celebration of life. “So far this year we have given away 20 cruises to those who truly deserve a break”, states Ted Friedli, the founder of KCO and the owner of Excel Travel in Long Branch.
