Let’s Conquer It. Together.
Childhood cancer can be beaten.
Join the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to help fund research that is changing the lives of kids with cancer worldwide.
Worldwide, 300,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. In the U.S., more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease—more than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies and diabetes combined.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives.
Kids are different.
Their cancer treatment should be too.
Kids are treated different in almost every aspect of daily life. St. Baldrick's is funding research that takes a different approach to therapies, to give them a healthier, longer life beyond the disease.
Children with cancer aren’t little adults fighting adult cancers. They require unique treatment and research.
Less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget is solely directed to childhood cancers.
Together, we can give kids with cancer a future.
Children with cancer hope for the same things that healthy children hope for—they dream of being princesses or pirates, walking on the moon, getting married and having children. But cancer gets in the way.
Together with our donors, we fund research. This research helps kids with cancer live long, healthy lives.
Join us! Help give kids with cancer a chance to grow up, get married, make choices, and reach their potential.
Thinking big to help kids survive and thrive.
St. Baldrick’s works with leading pediatric oncology experts around the world to determine research priorities, which help kids of all ages and with all types of childhood cancers.
Our grants are distributed around the world to reach the best institutions and doctors focusing on childhood cancer.
Researchers then share discoveries, knowledge, and techniques to the benefit of children everywhere.
You can do anything to help find cures.
One person’s crazy idea of shaving two heads started a movement that now involves thousands of volunteers worldwide raising millions to fund the most promising childhood cancer research.
Each year thousands of kids are diagnosed with cancer, so every contribution, no matter how small, counts.
If head-shaving isn’t your thing, get creative and start your own fundraiser–such as a block party or a race.
Speak up for kids’ cancer and Congress will listen.
Whether you’ve shaved your head, fundraised, have a personal connection, or just have a heart for kids with cancer, then you’re a childhood cancer advocate. Help make childhood cancer research a national priority.
The US Congress funds thousands of programs, but only a small amount helps kids with cancer. Change is needed.
We’ve created the Speak Up for Kids’s Cancer Action Network to help you get the word out and create change.
