Our mission: A long, healthy life for every child with cancer.

Children’s Cancer Cause is dedicated to monitoring, advocating and disseminating information about vital national issues facing children with cancer and their families. We are supported by corporate and foundation grants as well as caring friends and families. Our efforts focus on the day when childhood cancer will no longer be the leading disease killer of our children.

Childhood cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease for our nation’s children, and the health and well-being of childhood cancer survivors remains too fragile. Children’s Cancer Cause will continue to press for progress for national policies that can give our children access to the most effective therapies and can normalize their lives as they grow.

Founded in 1999, Children’s Cancer Cause was established to take a leadership role in advocacy and training on national issues affecting childhood cancer. We act as a catalyst to stimulate pediatric drug discovery and development and to help ensure care for our nation’s 500,000 survivors of childhood and adolescent cancer.

We work closely with leaders in the National Cancer Institute, the Food and Drug Administration, Congress and the pharmaceutical industry to make a difference in the pace and efficiency of getting new treatments to children. We fill a strategic national gap, by advancing policy and system improvements with a sense of urgency from families and survivors that childhood cancer must be eradicated.
