What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Hope vs Cancer Foundation was launched to address two serious issues that children face while undergoing cancer treatment. The first issue is the lack of funding children's cancer research receives, and the lack of awareness in regards to this issue. The shortage of funding has allowed little advancement in new drugs and the continued usage of extreme and harsh treatments. The second issue the Hope vs Cancer Foundation is working to address is emotional support of kids battling cancer. Hope vs Cancer works with tattoo artists around the world and manufactures temporary tattoos. The tattoos are sent out worldwide to pediatric cancer centers, children's hospitals, and family residences as incredible tools to lift kids spirits while battling cancer.

Charting impact

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

The Hope vs Cancer Foundation has three clear and concise goals it is aiming to accomplish:
1. Secure donations for children's cancer research, and get the funds in the right hands. Knowledge on its own is nothing, but the application of useful knowledge, now that is powerful. There are doctors willing and able to put in the work and have the knowledge, but there is a serious lack of funds available to perform the necessary research. We will secure the funding, so the doctors can apply their knowledge and attain advancement in the treatment of pediatric cancer.
2. During treatment, children are going through potentially detrimental physical and psychological changes. THe Hope vs Cancer Foundation aims to lift their spirits during treatment. The temporary tattoos the Hope vs Cancer Foundation manufactures provides an extra psychological edge and lifts their spirits during their toughest of times as a child.
3. There is a serious absence of awareness about how many children are diagnosed with pediatric cancer and the lack of research funding that is made available. THe Hope vs Cancer Foundation ais to raise awareness in this matter.

The tattoo community around the world is uniting to combat pediatric cancer. They put the 'foundation' in the Hope vs Cancer Foundation.
In partnership with tattoo brands and tattoo artists, as well as through tattoo artwork, Hope vs Cancer thinks outside the box and maximizes the board's digital efficiency in fundraising strategies.

The Hope vs Cancer Foundation has an extensive network of volunteers, corporate executives and mentors who are eager to lend their expertise and assistance to the growth of the foundation.

Hope vs Cancer was the first pediatric nonprofit verified by Instagram with the blue check.
Hope vs Cancer has been partnered with the Miami Heat since 2019. Players visit local children battling cancer and apply Hope vs Cancer temporary tattoos.
In 2020, Hope vs Cancer dispersed two pediatric cancer research grants. One to the University of Miami- Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center for $100,000 and the second to Texas Children's for $50,000.
