Did you know that every two minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer? That means 25,000 kids around the world will hear the words “you have cancer” this month alone

Now is the time to help #DFYchildhoodCancers By funding research, you are giving every child hope for a cure.

Here are six easy ways you can help find cures for kids with cancer.

Give! Your generous gift will support the very best childhood cancer research. It’s the simplest way to keep the research going. But what’s even better? Doubling your donation! Many companies have programs that will match the amount you give to St. Baldrick’s — see if your company will double your donation by visiting our Matching Gifts page.

Make a donation

You don’t have to shave your head to raise money. You can run a 5K, read a stack of books, jump rope for 24 hours — the sky’s the limit! (Well, nearly. Some exclusions apply.) Just do what you want, and ask your friends and family to make a donation.

Start a fundraiser

Kids need adults to speak up for them, and yours is just the voice we’re looking for. Join our advocacy action network, Speak Up for Kids’ Cancer, and you’ll get alerts when your help is needed most.

Speak Up for Kids’ Cancer

St. Baldrick’s events are like a party for good — and you can be the one to make it happen. Start a St. Baldrick’s event in your community. Or sign up to shave your head, either at an event or as a “virtual shavee℠.”
