The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer and donor powered charity committed to supporting the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
It affects kids whether they’re just learning to walk or just learning to drive, in big cities or in small towns, kids with brown eyes, blue eyes, or green. Every year, we choose five kids to represent the thousands of kids diagnosed with cancer.
Since 2005, we’ve invested over $300 million in childhood cancer research grants worldwide. It’s about collaboration. It’s about powerful ideas, big and small. It’s about never giving up until we have cures for all kids with cancer.See the Impact
