St. Baldrick’s Foundation is the world’s largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants. Since 2005, volunteers and donors like you have made it possible for us to grant over $200 million to help kids overcome cancer and get back to the important stuff, like splashing in rain puddles, playing armpit solos and giggling themselves silly.

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.
