What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Children's Cancer Center is a non-profit organization unlike any other in the United States! While other organizations are funding research, to hopefully find a cure, the Children's Cancer Center is dedicated to serving families with children battling cancer or chronic blood disorders on a daily basis. The team serves 1,000+ families in the Tampa Bay area and surrounding communities through 24 different programs to provide educational, emotional, and financial support. However, they know that "It Takes More Than Medicine to be Well" and that is why the Children's Cancer Center aims to give these families a platform to come together and share their diagnosis, survivorship, or bereavement experiences with one another.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Children's Cancer Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving families of children who have cancer or chronic blood disorders. With over 24 support programs and services currently helping more than 1,000 families, support is offered to all members of the family and is available throughout every step of their difficult journey.

In order for the Children's Cancer Center to provide consistent educational, emotional, and financial support to the 1,000+ families it serves, they have specific strategies in place for raising awareness and funds. The Children's Cancer Center hosts four annual signature events, some in their 6th year, that raise more than half a million dollars to support their 24 programs. In addition, they are involved in community outreach with each of the hospitals treating children in the Tampa Bay area, they apply for grants, they participate in 3rd party events that partners host in their honor, and they promote multiple marketing campaigns for childhood cancer awareness and general contributions.

The Children's Cancer Center has been supporting families with children battling cancer or chronic blood disorders since 1974. Their 45 years of service speaks volumes to their credibility in the community and for sustaining a consistent rapport with multiple hospitals in the Tampa Bay area.

For a small team of only eight employees, the Children's Cancer Center has come so far in the last 45 years. Their goal is to continue growing into surrounding communities, like Sarasota where they just opened a new satellite office, and eventually expand into other areas of Florida to help children and families cope.
