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 and donor powered charity committed to supporting the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and health 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.

The National Cancer Institute has nearly doubled its investment in childhood cancer research in recent years due to greater advocacy and awareness, but more research funding is needed to develop new, safe therapies for kids with cancer.

Give Today

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.

Donate Today

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.

Get Involved

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.
