What we aim to solve

Families impacted by childhood cancer feel alone and limited. We strive to make sure they always feel loved, encouraged and supported during their treatment journey.

We focus 100% on "curing bad days" not curing cancer.

Our mission is to ensure every kid (and their family) fighting cancer has the support to Never Ever Give Up. We accomplish this by CONNECTING with their family, bringing AWARENESS to their story, providing them helpful RESOURCES and sending them continuous doses of ENCOURAGEMENT throughout their treatment.

We partner with over 270 children's hospitals, 175 Ronald McDonald Houses and 118 camps to reach kids. Once the relationship starts between us and a child/family we provide monthly boosts of encourage and support to the child, their siblings and their parents.

We have reached over 300,000 children since 2011 so we feel our method and model is working and allowing us to support these innocent children.

More children reach and resourced annually. According to St. Baldricks, over 300,000 children are diagnosed with cancer a year around the world.

We have reached over 300,000 children in all 50 states and 32 countries. We still have thousands of children to reach, which increases daily by 100+ children.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
