Cancer is the #1 cause of death by disease among children. In the United States, 43 kids are diagnosed with cancer every day, yet childhood cancer is consistently and vastly underfunded. Less than 4% of the federal government's total funding for cancer research is directed towards childhood cancers each year. Donations have the potential to make a difference--in funding research into safer, more effective treatments and cures, and in the lives of those affected by childhood cancer worldwide.
About the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation:
The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF) collaborates with leading hospitals across the nation to fund clinical trials to find faster cures specifically for pediatric cancer. Since 1991, the NPCF has been a shining light for children fighting cancer by donating millions of dollars to research. The clinical trials we've funded are yielding amazing discoveries and the advancements are saving children’s lives.
