With only 4% of all federal funding for cancer research allocated to childhood cancer projects, NPCF seeks your help to offset this lack of funding. When you donate to NPCF, you’re funding critical research and scientific advances to find better treatment options through the best doctors and scientists at over thirty leading pediatric cancer institutions in the U.S.
Every dollar you give will have twice the impact on helping our littlest cancer warriors. Through this donation match campaign, we seek to raise up to $2 million for critical pediatric cancer research, but we can’t stop there. Most current standard treatments for pediatric cancer were approved before the mid-1980s, and those toxic treatments cause more than 95% of childhood cancer survivors to experience significant health-related issues by the age of 45.
“We are so grateful for our generous donor who recognizes the critical need for pediatric cancer research funding. Your impact on pediatric cancer will be doubled with every donation amount being met dollar-for-dollar, having twice the effect on further funding essential science, and saving children’s lives,” said NPCF CEO David Frazer.
If you’ve ever wanted to make a big difference for critically ill children, now is the time. Make twice the impact for kids like Riley and “Help Fund the Cure” by donating to fund research at HelpFundTheCure.org.
