The more research is accelerated, the sooner we'll achieve significant breakthroughs and cures. But we can't count on federal funding. Not only has there been an alarming decrease in budgets, but less than 4% of federal funding directed toward cancer research goes toward solving children's cancers.
CURE focuses entirely on children's cancer efforts and funds the work of some of the best and brightest scientists in the field of pediatric cancer. As research efforts continue, we also address the critical and urgent needs of patients and families.Goal
Until that day, regardless of individual outcomes, each and every child and his or her family are part of our mission. And we will do anything we can to ease their burden and give them hope.
CURE for Childhood Cancer partners with people and organizations that share our vision and passion to see childhood cancer defeated.
Our funding is made possible by individuals and organizations which believe in our mission and have joined us in driving it forward. With their support, we're bringing discoveries, hope and cures to the courageous children we serve.
