Every week, 38 kids pass away from cancer. Children’s Cancer Research Fund wants to stop this, so we support the brightest and boldest minds whose groundbreaking research is leading to better treatments and cures. We are also dedicated to funding vital support services that help kids and families as they navigate the difficult experience.
Since its very beginning, St. Baldrick’s has funded the Children’s Oncology Group (COG). This is the world’s largest pediatric cancer research network, more than 200 institutions with the expertise to treat childhood cancers, across the U.S. and beyond. The COG's cooperative research is crucial to progress in finding cures and improving life for survivors.
COG institutions treat 90% of children with cancer in the United States through clinical research trials, their best hope for a cure. By funding the COG, the St. Baldrick's Foundation helps children everywhere.

The Faris Foundation brings brighter days and better treatments to children with cancer. We are led by our Chief Angel Officer, Faris D. Virani, a sweet 9-year-old boy whose own words guide the work that we do. He said: “Mommy, cancer is not hard.” So the foundation invests in high-impact research in rare pediatric cancers – as if our child’s life depends on it. Our current focus is on immunotherapy. Faris also said “Art is my life. Don’t kids matter? Aren’t we important? When I grow up, I will let there be gold. Always give love.” His words guide the programs to support children with cancer and to bring awareness to the gold ribbon.
A national collaboration of leading nonprofit organizations working together to raise awareness and advance research to find a cure for childhood cancer.
The Focused Ultrasound Foundation was created to improve the lives of millions of people worldwide by accelerating the development of focused ultrasound, an early-stage noninvasive therapeutic technology with the potential to transform the treatment of many medical disorders. The Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that focused ultrasound finds its place as a mainstream therapy within years, not decades, and works to fund research, foster collaboration, and build awareness among patients and professionals. Since its establishment in 2006, it has become the largest non-governmental source of funding for focused ultrasound research.
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation and the Kids First Data Resource Center have in common a very important goal: to see that no research data goes to waste – that all data that can be used for childhood cancer research is shared with – and accessible to – researchers everywhere.
Griffin's Guardians was created by Erin and Adam Engle in memory of their son, Griffin, who fought a courageous battle with Glioblastoma Multiform, an aggressive form of brain cancer, at the age of seven.

Marlee’s Smile was founded in honor of a beautiful forever twelve-year-old, Marlee Pack. Marlee was diagnosed at age eight with Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma; she would relapse three times in four years. After the final relapse, Marlee was empowered to make a decision no child should have to: continue the painful, toxic treatments that would not cure her, or enter hospice care. She found her eventual healing in Heaven on February 23, 2019. We have one mission at Marlee’s Smile: Change the lives of kid’s with cancer, one smile at a time. We serve that mission in two ways. The first is to provide a custom Build-A-Bear to every child fighting cancer, as well as their siblings; this is to honor Marlee’s giving heart as she knew the comfort a furry friend could bring. The second is to fund targeted research of pediatric cancers, specifically sarcomas; this is to honor Marlee’s dying wish that no child should have to suffer the pain and hopelessness of cancer treatments currently available to children.
The Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation’s vision is to reach every family affected by childhood cancer in the Northern Nevada and Eastern Sierra regions.
Their mission is to enhance the quality of life for children with cancer and their families by providing financial assistance and compassionate support programs while advocating for increased research funds and raising public awareness.
Today, we can adapt the immune system to help fight cancer. Unfortunately, cancerous tumors have shown a remarkable ability to adapt in their own way, limiting the effectiveness of treatments for conditions like osteosarcoma. Researchers from Case Western University and Baylor University are seeking to change that.
These researchers, including Dr. Huang along with Drs. Jason Yustein and Nabil Ahmed, have focused their attention on the key molecules responsible for helping osteosarcoma evade immunity.
PAC2 members grow, organize and plan and take action as one voice united against childhood cancer.

A diagnosis of critical illness changes the life of a family in an instant. The simplest daily tasks become overwhelming for parents caring for their sick child. We work with hospitals and social workers to support basic and fundamental needs for the whole family, to give a family more time to care for their sick child and be with their other children. The core programs we offer address the unique, unmet needs of each family, helping them through the medical crisis and back to self-sufficiency.
The Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation was created in memory of Ty, who lost his 2-year battle with brain cancer just days after his fifth birthday. The TLC Foundation funds innovative research and clinical trials specifically geared toward the treatment of the deadliest childhood cancers (including brain and spinal cord tumors). TLC seeks less toxic, more effective treatments that are specifically designed for children fighting cancer. Their ultimate mission is to help fund the intelligence and technology that will uncover new ways to cure children with cancer.
Voices Against Cancer is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that raises funds and awareness for pediatrics, pediatric cancer, and pediatric cancer research. Children are our future, and the future is worth fighting for. With only about 9% of all federal funding for cancer research going to projects involving children’s cancers, it is up to us to make a difference and to help #GiveKidsAVoice. Childhood cancer also impacts the entire family – the child going through treatment, the siblings who support, and also need support, as they are at risk for emotional and behavioral difficulties, and the parents who will sometimes lose up to 50% of their annual household income as a result of childhood cancer treatment-related work disruptions or having to quit their job to care for their child. The majority of the funding that we use to support pediatrics, pediatric cancer, and pediatric cancer research comes from our Annual Voices Against Cancer Initiative. The Voices Against Cancer Initiative is a Pop Culture Event that will include a host of AMAZING TALENT who have epically rallied together to battle this horrible disease. These celebrities have been the defining voices of generations representing many different genres and franchises. Voices Against Cancer also hosts the local Sioux Empire St. Baldrick’s Head Shaving Event.
Through his #1 song "Clouds," Zach Sobiech inspired millions and showed the world that you "don't have to find out you're dying to start living." When Zach knew he was dying from osteosarcoma, he wanted to be part of creating better, safer treatments so other kids wouldn’t have to go through what he did. So, he and his family established the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund. Zach’s legacy continues to live on today through funding critical research aimed at improving outcomes for kids diagnosed with osteosarcoma.
