See The Impact

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.

The research we fund has the potential to impact every kid diagnosed with cancer.
That’s a pretty bold statement, and one we stand by. Here’s why: the breadth and depth of the research we fund for childhood cancers is unparalleled.

More than $232 million. 1249 grants. 27 countries.

When you give to St. Baldrick’s, you don’t just give to one institution–you give to more than 373 institutions that are treating kids with cancer across the U.S. and beyond. It’s a ripple effect that can change the world.

We are serious about funding the best. That doesn’t happen by chance.

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.

Abby’s life was saved by childhood cancer research.

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%.

Progress is being made.

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.

A new discovery by St. Baldrick's researchers could radically transform treatment for kids with neuroblastoma - a new immunotherapy drug candidate that harnesses the immune system to fight cancer.

Six-year-old Hazel screamed for joy at hearing she was cancer-free again. A relapse has been the end of hope for too many patients, but St. Baldrick's researchers are changing that.

Exciting progress has already come out of the Stand Up to Cancer – St. Baldrick’s Pediatric Cancer Dream Team, including FDA approval of the first gene therapy in the United States.

You can help make more research possible.
Every grant we fund gets us one step closer to cures.
