We believe helping to find a CURE for pediatric cancer should be the ultimate mission of any cancer foundation. Our charity hosts fundraisers and events to raise awareness and contribute to organizations that fund promising research in pediatric cancer fields.

Research Priorities

If we’re going to find cures for children with cancer, we have to think big, work smart, and fund research that helps them survive and thrive.  Leading pediatric oncology experts work with us to determine our research priorities, which help kids of all ages and with all types of childhood cancers.

(Our St. Baldrick’s fundraising event is held the Sunday before St. Patrick’s day)
