September is childhood cancer awareness month.

Each day, we share the stories of special children whose lives have been impacted by cancer. Stories of survival. Stories of loss. Stories of hope. Click below to read their stories, and consider making a contribution to their fundraising efforts.

With this conviction, CURE Childhood Cancer set out in 1975 to increase the survival rate of all children with cancer. At that time, the rate was less than 20%. Since then, research has led to an overall survival rate of nearly 80%.

But that is not and never will be good enough.

Every child with cancer deserves to beat the disease. Not just 80% of them. That's why nothing less than 100% will do.

100% is the goal.

100% is how much we're convinced we will achieve it.

100% is what we give each and every day.

And it's all for the kids.




Research is the key, and funding makes it possible.

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.

Our mission and vision
are clear.

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.


The journey does not stop until all childhood cancers are solved.

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.





Teamwork with donors, doctors, and families changes the dynamic.

CURE for Childhood Cancer partners with people and organizations that share our vision and passion to see childhood cancer defeated.
