My Story

My niece Megan was diagnosed just before Christmas in 1998, and underwent a series of surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy over the next year. She is now cancer-free and enjoying being a "tweenager", but still faces more surgery to correct some side effects from her previous treatment. Thanks to the dedication and hard work of the medical research community and the kindness of donors to and supporters of medical research, Megan is alive and well!

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.
