What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Cancer is bad enough. But when it affects a child, it is particularly devastating. Because kids deserve a chance to experience life. To laugh and have fun. To be amazed and to dream. To grow up.



Every year, there are over 250,000 new cases of cancer that affect children under the age of 20 worldwide, that's over 700 kids diagnosed with cancer every single day. Despite this, childhood cancer research is severely underfunded.



Unfortunately, we can't count on federal funding to help kids with cancer. Not only has there been an alarming decrease in budgets, but less than 4% of the NCI's federal funding goes towards research for all childhood cancers, combined.
