My Story

I'm raising money for childhood cancer research! Did you know that kids' cancers are different from adult cancers? It's true. And childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded. So I decided to do something about it by raising money for cures. Now I need your help! Will you make a donation? Every dollar makes a difference for the thousands of infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancers.Being a childhood cancer patient, I understand the struggle many of these children go through. We want to have a childhood, but that means we have to be healthy. We want to go play at the park, but have treatments instead. We want to go hang out with our friends, but we are too worn out to get out of bed. By donating to this organization, we can try to reduce the amount of children who have to hear "You have cancer", and change it to "You are cancer-free".

The Childhood Cancer Ripple Effect

Help kids take childhood back from cancer — support lifesaving cancer research today.

Children who are fighting or have fought cancer inspire others to be part of the Foundation's mission — to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
