A world where…

Children can be cured with minimal disruption to their childhood.
Every patient has a unique treatment plan and a universal right to a hopeful future.
Every kid diagnosed with cancer receives the care and expertise they deserve.
Where every childhood is lived to its fullest potential.

“Until we can give every family good news in the face of a tough diagnosis, until every child with every form of cancer can hear us say, ‘We’ve got this and you’re going to be OK,’ then we need to aim higher. We must do more until there is no more to do. Philanthropy enables us to fulfill our responsibility to keep raising the bar.”
