September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

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

I am raising money for Pediatric Cancer Foundation (PCF). September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Every dollar raised will help save a child’s life.

The mission of Pediatric Cancer Foundation is to find a cure for childhood cancer through support of groundbreaking research at premier hospitals, as well as contributing to state-of-the-art medical equipment at these institutions. 

Founded in 1970, PCF is a nonprofit organization committed to making pediatric cancer a relic of the past. Join us in our mission! Thank you for your support.

For your convenience, we have also provided a step-by-step guide below to creating the fundraiser, but please feel free to reach out to us at info@pcfcares.org for further questions.
