From Dinosaurs to Dogs, Cancer Doesn’t Discriminate.

Did you know some dinosaurs had cancer? Osteosarcoma, a kind of bone cancer, is so old that scientists have found it in dinosaur bones. Today’s treatments for kids with osteosarcoma aren’t quite that old, but many haven’t changed since the 1980s and they leave kids with lots of painful side effects. Children’s Cancer Research Fund supports scientists looking for better, safer treatments for kids fighting cancer – even cancers as old as the dinosaurs.

You know what else? Childhood cancer treatment can lead to other lasting health problems when kids grow up. That’s why it’s so important that we continue to raise funds to support superstar scientists!

Ready. Set. Fundraise!

Use the tools and resources below to help get your fundraiser started, then share it with your school or team, track your fundraising goal and show your appreciation!

Looking For Ideas? Check out the Fundraising Stories Of These Heroic Kiddos!

Maddison, or Moo to her loved ones, was a second grader who passed away from a stage IV glioblastoma brain tumor in May 2017. In the seven months that Moo battled this monster, she demonstrated the strength of a superhero. Always joyful and clever, Maddison began dressing up in costume at the age of four and knocking on doors to trick or treat – regardless of the month. To honor her memory, her friends and family went trick or treating for donations in the month of May, raising over $13,000.
The class read The Fault of Our Stars, a story about a teenager with osteosarcoma, and “met” Zach Sobiech by listening to his music and watching videos on YouTube. The class even Skyped with Zach’s mom Laura Sobiech to learn about how cancer impacts families. Their experience moved them to create a fundraiser over lunch to raise money for the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund!
It takes a special person to give up their own birthday gifts to help someone else – but that’s just the kind of person 11-year-old London is. London decided to ask her family and friends to donate to her personal CCRF fundraiser page instead of birthday gifts. In just two weeks, London raised over $700 for childhood cancer research!
