CancerFree KIDS is a non-profit organization whose mission is to eradicate cancer as a life-threatening
illness in children. Their mission is driven by the belief that funding research is the means to finding a cure for pediatric
cancer. It also supports the belief that research of childhood
cancers has and will continue to contribute significantly to the research of all types of cancers, including adult cancers,
and that it should be funded accordingly.
In early 2003 CancerFree KIDS received its 501(c)3 non-profit organization status and since
then has partnered with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center (CCHMC) to award research grants towards children’s
cancer research. Since 2003 CancerFree KIDS has granted 94 research
grants totalling over THREE million dollars!
