What we aim to solve New!

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 the

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 Hope vs Cancer has several strategies and programs in action as well as under development to achieve its goals.
The traditional tattoo community around the world is uniting to combat pediatric cancer. They put the 'foundation' in the Hope vs Cancer Foundation. In our donor shop, merchandise will be available that is made from custom donated artwork. These aren't just phrases or digital designs on T-shirts, they have a story and emotion behind them and they are hand painted designs. Often artists donate because of a personal reason. The population gravitates to merchandise and goods that have a story and meaning behind it. Especially when it supports a worthy cause.
The temporary tattoos for the little warriors are available to any pediatric cancer center, hospital, or personal residence that wants them. Life services coordinators or directors are continually contacted and introduced to our programs that we have available to help lift spirits during treatment.

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.

Progress by the Hope vs Cancer Foundation will be measured in three areas.
How many research grants and the total amount of research grant funds made available by the foundation for clinical trials will be the major measurement of progress, as well as how those research grants and trials performed.
The second area that will measure our progress will be feedback surveys that will be completed by oncology department nurses, coordinators, directors and volunteers that work directly with the children as they are receiving the tattoos. The surveys are being constructed by psychology department professors as well as clinical trial nurses at the University of Miami.
While there is no feasible way to directly measure the effectiveness of spreading awareness, the foundation's social media is a good indicator of how many people we are reaching. Continual growth of followers and website visitors will be viable ways of measuring how many people we are reaching.

The Hope vs Cancer Foundation is just beginning to get into its stride and is only in 5 months of operation, but it has already achieved tremendous accomplishments. These accomplishments include our 501(c)3 approval, website launch, over 6,000 followers on social media, and nearly 10,000 tattoos sent out to children who are undergoing treatment.
We have some exciting programs in development for the rest of 2018.
-Hope vs Cancer tattoo week, where participating tattoo shops will raise donations for the duration of the week, will launch in September
-Hope vs Cancer tattoo mini parlors, where kids can sign up to have their own tattoo shop and give temporary tattoos to raise donations will launch late Summer 2018
