Kristin Connor, Executive Director

Kristin joined CURE Childhood Cancer in March 2006 as Executive Director after a personal experience with childhood cancer changed and redirected her life. Kristin’s second son was diagnosed in October 2001 at one month old with an aggressive form of childhood cancer called neuroblastoma. The suffering of children and families at the hands of childhood cancer inspired her to leave her law practice and lead CURE into the future.

Under Kristin’s leadership, CURE has raised more than $51 million, launched a precision medicine program for gene based therapy, added many important patient and family services and more.
