What Makes Us Different?
All of the vast improvements in the way we diagnose, treat and cure cancers have come as the result of research, and yet, pediatric cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded. Much more funding is needed to continue down the path toward a cure with increased speed. That’s what we are here for.
CancerFree KIDS funds innovative research that has the promise of gentler treatments and cures for children with cancer. We know that seed money for novel ideas is critical, and yet it is the most difficult type of funding to get. Potentially game-changing ideas often go untried due to lack of funding.
CancerFree KIDS raises funds all year, through fundraising initiatives we host ourselves and those hosted by others for our benefit, and then we give it all away at the end of the year in the form of research grants. Then we start over.
