Our mission is to Activate the Cure for childhood cancer by raising awareness and funding for innovative childhood cancer treatments that are less toxic and more targeted, such as immunotherapy, and to support families fighting childhood cancer.

An Innovative Approach to Treating Childhood Cancer:

Emily’s life was saved using a revolutionary new cancer treatment called T-Cell Therapy. In 2012, she was the first child in the world to have her immune cells trained to fight cancer. Today, she is seven years cancer free.

We want every child fighting cancer to find their cure.
