Our vision is that no child with cancer is ever told,
“We’ve run out of options.”

In 2020, we were able to grant nearly $900,000 and match federal government funding for every child enrolled in the Children's Oncology Group Pediatric Early Phase - Clinical Trial Network. Research doesn't move forward without funding and funding doesn't happen without one crucial ingredient: you. In a year where everything seemed upside town, we are so grateful for the support from our partners and donors.

Our Impact in Action

We fund the best, most promising research so that kids like Aidan can get the lifesaving treatments they need when they need it.

Meet Aidan. Just days before he turned five, Aidan was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma. He survived only to relapse at nine-years-old when he was told he had run out of treatment options. It was then that a new cancer vaccine (funded by us) gave him a second shot at life.

Driven By Science

Our all-star medical advisory board meets to review and evaluate each grant request using the same stringent criteria as the National Cancer Institute. In addition, all members must recuse themselves when their institution is being considered in order to ensure objectivity. Finally, no Cookies for Kids’ Cancer employee or board member is present during these reviews. We truly want to fund the best and most promising research that will help children as soon as possible.

$100 will fund the next hour of breakthrough research.
And every dollar and hour counts.
