September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Each day, 43 families in the United States will hear the words “your child has cancer.” This September, we’ve made it easier than ever for you to join the fight.

A little does a lot.

Some problems, like childhood cancer, can seem too big or too overwhelming to solve. However, researchers are working hard every day to find better treatments and cures for kids fighting cancer – and they’re making progress. Your support helps fund these researchers so their work can keep moving forward. No matter what you can contribute – a little does a lot.

Your Donation: More Powerful Than You Think

Every dollar you donate helps researchers secure an additional $18 from federal funding and other sources. For kids like Nathalia, Jacob, Gabby, Izzy and Nolan, that means clinical trials and better treatment options that can make all the difference.

Start a Fundraiser

Children’s Cancer Research Fund has made it easy to start a fundraiser to support the brightest and boldest minds whose groundbreaking research is saving children’s lives. Celebrate a birthday, honor a loved one or start your own fundraising event – the possibilities are endless! No fundraising idea is too small to make a lasting impact in the life of a child with cancer.

And this year, we’ve made it easy for kids to make a difference – check out our brand new kids fundraising page!
