You Can Make an Impact

Children’s Cancer Research Fund invests in lifesaving, leading-edge research in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure of childhood cancers and blood-related disorders.

Fueled by compassion since opening our doors in 1981, our team has revolutionized the way childhood cancer is treated worldwide. Our investments in key research initiatives and patient care have led to innovative treatments, faster cures, new discoveries, and compassionate quality-of-life programs that give hope to pediatric patients and their families.
