We are thrilled to announce $1.1 million in new grants to bolster pediatric cancer clinical trial enrollment. Clinical trials play a crucial role in the fight against childhood cancer. The unsung heroes who help make clinical trials happen for kids are the dedicated clinical research associates, nurses, and support staff.

This $1.1 million supports these necessary roles to ensure more kids get treated on a clinical trial, often their best hope for a cure.

Without your support, these grants would not be possible. Thank you for your generosity and passion to Conquer Kids’ Cancer.
