Coming Together for a Cure

Since 1970, Pediatric Cancer Foundation has been raising funds for research to support doctors and hospitals in an effort to eradicate childhood cancer.

Cancer is the leading cause of
non-accidental deaths in children.

About 9,910* children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2023.

*American Cancer Society

All types of childhood cancers combined receive only 4% of the U.S. federal funding for cancer research.

We’re excited to announce our $1 million donation to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. This grant will support a planned first-in-human phase 1 clinical trial led by Sarah K. Tasian, MD, which will use a new immunotherapy to target the FLT3 receptor protein in high-risk pediatric leukemias. CHOP has been a leader in development of CAR-T cell therapy for use in pediatric cancers for the past decade and we are so proud to contribute to their strides in the search for a cure.
