Kids Cancer Fund

Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease for children in America. Twenty percent of children with cancer in the U.S. will not survive it. Cancer is diagnosed each year in more than 300,000 children worldwide. The average age of a child diagnosed with cancer is six. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, life changes not only for the child but for the whole family. This is why Kids Cancer Fund is here to help. Kids need big heroes like you. Help us help them fight by donating today.

Mission Statement

“Kids Cancer Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation whose mission is to increase the survival rate and quality of care for children with cancer. " Our grants provide financial assistance to families in need and funds promising pediatric research that can lead to a cure for children with cancer.

About This Cause

Kids Cancer Fund provides financial assistance to families in need. For example, Our Make a Wish program is used to purchase a special toy or gift that a sick child finds comforting during their hospital stay. These could be awesome toys, wall decorations/posters or personalized blankets that help make the hospital stay as calm and comfortable as possible. Caring for a child with cancer is expensive and stressful. The diagnosis of cancer can be overwhelming. Healthcare costs can be staggering. Often a parent must quit their job to become a full-time caregiver. Our grants help reduce the cost of cancer treatment for families in need. For example, grants are awarded to help with prescription drug costs, travel expenses, and emotional support services. Gifts to Kids Cancer Fund help save children’s lives and reduce their suffering. We rely on the generosity of our supporters – without you, our work would not be possible. All donations are tax deductible. Please be a hero to a child in need. Help us help them win the fight.
