A $14.5 million grant and four years of research to combat the most hard–to–treat childhood cancers
Worldwide, the number of children who will die from childhood cancer this year would nearly fill the stadium seats at Fenway Park, and five times that many will be diagnosed. Infant or teenager, rich or poor, black or white—childhood cancer can strike at any time.
Children with cancer aren't just little adults fighting adult cancers. Childhood cancers are unique and require unique treatment and research, yet government and pharmaceutical funding for childhood cancer research is scarce. That's where St. Baldrick’s steps in.
From shaving heads at volunteer-planned St. Baldrick’s events, to running races, and contacting members of Congress, St. Baldrick’s Foundation volunteers are helping kids with cancer in many different ways. Find out how you can get involved if you have only minutes or many hours—every moment counts.Make a Difference
