St. Baldrick’s Foundation Statement on the Release of President Biden’s Fiscal Year 2022 Budget Proposal
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation issues the following statement in response to the release of President Joe Biden’s Fiscal Year 2022 budget proposal:
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest non-government funder of childhood cancer research grants, thanks President Biden for his strong commitment to cancer research as outlined in his Fiscal Year 2022 budget proposal. While research for many diseases is principally funded by sources other than government, such as philanthropies, academia, and industry sources, childhood cancer research uniquely depends on the federal government as its primary source of funding. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation stands ready to work with the Administration and Congress on our shared goal to give kids a lifetime beyond a cancer diagnosis.
About St. Baldrick’s Foundation
Every 2 minutes a child somewhere in the world is diagnosed with cancer. In the U.S., 1 in 5 will not survive. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest non-government funder of childhood cancer research grants, is on a mission to give kids a lifetime by supporting the most promising research to find cures and better treatments for all childhood cancers. When you give to St. Baldrick’s, you don’t just give to one hospital – you support virtually every institution with the expertise to treat kids with cancer across the U.S. St. Baldrick’s ensures that children fighting cancer now — and those diagnosed in the future — will have access to the most cutting-edge treatment, by supporting every stage of research, from new ideas in the lab to the development of new therapies, to life-saving clinical trials.
