Since 1982, the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation has been chasing one ambitious goal: to make it possible for all children facing childhood cancer to beat their disease and realize their full potential. We will achieve this by powering cures where none exists and giving rise to less toxic regimens that have fewer side effects.
While the challenge is huge, we are both optimistic and determined. We have raised and invested more than $53 million in pediatric cancer research that has contributed to groundbreaking advances in treatment — and we are just getting started. In 2022, we turn 40 years young and we plan to use our insights, experience, and leadership to uncover promising new directions and drive momentum in pediatric cancer research.
We know that meaningful progress relies on investing in promising research that advances the learning cycle and yields new insights. We know, too, that identifying breakthroughs means championing and nurturing the researchers who are moving science forward every day. By working together — with the research community, our partners and kind-hearted supporters — we will give flight to the breakthroughs that will help transform pediatric cancer care.
