The mission of CancerFree KIDS is to eradicate cancer as a life-threatening disease in children by funding promising research that might otherwise go unfunded.

The Need. Our Commitment.

Before promising new research has the potential to succeed, it must have resources to begin.

This is our work.
Funding innovative research in its early stages.
Giving hope.
Saving lives.

Night for the Fight

An all-night fundraising and awareness event that attracts 1000 high school students with a focus towards helping other school aged children battle cancer.

We fund childhood cancer research.

Promising research that has the promise of a cure and gentler treatments for children with cancer.

Why? Because more than 175,000 children worldwide are diagnosed with cancer each year.
