Our mission at CancerFree KIDS is to eradicate cancer as a life-threatening disease in children by funding promising research that might otherwise go unfunded.

CancerFree KIDS funds early-stage pediatric cancer research at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, OH. Just 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget goes to pediatric cancers. Even more startling, there are only 35 drugs approved to treat children’s cancers, compared to hundreds in use for adults, and the drugs that do exist are outdated and harsh on children’s bodies.

CancerFree KIDS exists to bridge this gap in childhood cancer funding. We provides seed funding for high risk/high reward research that holds the promise to produce more effective and gentler treatment options for kids. As a result of the $7 million we have invested since 2002, our researchers have gone on to receive more than $71 million in subsequent funding to continue their research.
