Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Childhood cancer is an under-funded area of medical research, with few new treatment options brought to the market. Additionally, children and their families undergoing pediatric cancer treatment often experience extreme hardship during prolonged in-patient treatment, preventing kids from experiencing the joy of being a kid.
