Research that holds the promise of finding gentler and more effective treatments for childhood cancer. Why? Because more than 175,000 children worldwide are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Percentage of federally funded research focused on childhood cancers

What We Do
CancerFree KIDS invests in innovative pediatric cancer research in its early stages to find gentler and more effective treatments for childhood cancer.
CancerFree KIDS aims to find gentler, more effective childhood cancer treatments by funding innovative research projects in the early stages of development. New ideas need money to grow, yet potential breakthrough treatment methods often go nowhere because pediatric cancer research is drastically underfunded.
CancerFree KIDS provides grants to high-risk/high-reward childhood cancer research projects in these crucial early stages, which allows researchers to prove their concept, secure additional funding, find new treatment therapies and eventually end childhood cancer.
