There is an urgent unmet need for new and less toxic children’s cancer treatments. Each year more than 15,000 children in the U.S. alone are diagnosed with cancer. For those who survive, as many as 85% will develop one or more chronic health conditions including secondary cancers, severe musculoskeletal problems, and cardiovascular disease as a result of treatment. Our kids deserve better.

With your support, we fund the most promising and impactful research focused on developing new therapies for cancers with low survival, high recurrence, or horrible treatment-related side or late effects. During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we're highlighting our focus on accelerating the pace of high-potential drug development via our targeted research strategy and critical collaborations to drive new, better treatment options into the clinic, reaching children today.

Overcoming the obstacles for the kids who are counting on us.

Why is the development of new, better treatment options so important? In the videos below, Megan and her son JP share how a clinical trial saved her son JP's life and survivor Abby tells us how her harsh treatments continue to impact her today.
