Our Mission

We believe that no family should suffer financial hardship while battling childhood cancer, and so the Fighting Children's Cancer Foundation provides needs-based financial assistance to families struggling with pediatric cancer.  Committed to supporting these families in their efforts to improve their children's quality of life, the Foundation also strives to educate others about the challenges faced by families living with cancer and to generate additional support for their benefit.
