A world where…

Where every childhood is lived to its fullest potential.
How will we cure cancer and blood disorders?
With the help of donors who invest in our bold vision.
Donors fuel bold ideas that transform careFive years ago, Dr. Christopher Ng, a pediatric hematologist at Children’s Hospital Colorado, had a big idea about how to build on new findings to transform care for children with rare blood diseases. Today, his discoveries are transforming the way we treat blood disorders in kids.
Giving hope to families without optionsFamilies come from all over the country to see Dr. Meg Macy in hopes of gaining a priceless gift: more time with their child. Using precision medicine, advanced technologies can rapidly diagnose and decode each child’s disease down to the cellular level to customize treatments and maximize cure rates while minimizing side effects.
Advancing cures through researchPhysician-scientists at Children’s Colorado are working tirelessly to find more effective, less invasive treatments for pediatric cancer, and they are gaining ground by using an unexpected weapon: the body’s own immune system. With sufficient funding, researchers believe they can advance new therapies that turn kids’ bodies into cancer-fighting machines.
Helping families navigate a devastating diagnosisHaving a child diagnosed with cancer is one of the most devastating experiences a parent will ever face. Fortunately, donors enable us to give families extensive support. We are a national leader in the breadth of support services and therapies we offer, along with the holistic integration of these programs into a child’s care plan – both during treatment and the years that follow.
We have the talent, the technology, and the vision.
With a unique convergence of talent, expertise, research opportunities and campus partnerships, Children’s Colorado is ideally positioned to lead radical change in the fight against pediatric cancer and blood disorders. Our remarkable strengths include:
- The right team, including some of the world’s leading experts in immunotherapy and hematology research.
