Going the extra mile
Children’s Cancer Research Fund recognizes the need for patient care that reaches beyond medical treatments and therapies to provide families with emotional support, networking opportunities, and other kinds of assistance as they deal with childhood cancer. We oversee a variety of support initiatives to ensure that families have access to these important non-medical resources.
