This is what it’s all about. It’s the reason we shave our heads, host events, give money and rally anyone who will listen.
We do it to fund lifesaving children’s cancer research.
When you give to St. Baldrick’s, you don’t just give to one institution–you give to more than 379 institutions that are treating kids with cancer across the U.S. and beyond. It’s a ripple effect that can change the world.
Our grant applications are reviewed by a group of more than 180 pediatric oncology experts in a rigorous peer–review process. We take every dollar and every grant decision seriously, because kids’ lives are at stake.

When Abby was 4 years old, she was diagnosed with Ph+ acute lymphoblastic leukemia and given a 20% chance at survival. St. Baldrick’s–funded research helped improve her chance of survival to an approximate 70%.
It takes decades of work to reach new discoveries, but children’s lives are being saved today because of research funded by St. Baldrick’s.
Exciting progress has already come out of the St. Baldrick’s – Stand Up to Cancer Pediatric Cancer Dream Team, including FDA approval of the first gene therapy in the United States.
Through collaboration with thought leaders in the research community, St. Baldrick’s has been highly responsive to the evolving landscape of childhood AML research. Our grants support every phase of the process, including early-stage research to challenge the status-quo and drive innovation.
