Real cures for real kids

Childhood cancer doesn't discriminate.

It affects kids from all walks of life, whether they’re learning to walk or learning to drive, live in big cities or small towns, have brown eyes or blue eyes. It doesn’t discriminate based on ethnicity, gender, or socio-economic status. Kids with cancer deserve a lifetime and are the heart of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

Funding the best research, no matter where it takes place

Since 2005, we’ve invested over $324 million in childhood cancer research grants worldwide. It’s about collaboration. It’s about powerful ideas, big and small. It’s about never giving up until we have cures for all kids with cancer.
