Real cures for real kids

Childhood cancer doesn't discriminate.

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.

Funding the best research, no matter where it takes place

Since 2005, we’ve invested over $200 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.

Research powered by you

As a private charity, St. Baldrick’s doesn’t receive money from the government

That’s right, 100% of our donations come from extraordinary people like you. We take great care to invest your dollars wisely because we know kids’ lives are at stake.
