Why We Exist
The mission of the End Kids Cancer Foundation, a leading pediatric cancer research charity, is to provide financial support for research and clinical trials that will cure neuroblastoma (NB), with an emphasis on non-toxic treatments. Our narrow focus on neuroblastoma is designed to increase the success of finding a cure. While the focus is narrow, the benefits derived will be broad. Studies have shown that advancements in the treatment of pediatric neuroblastoma, including those conducted by End Kids Cancer-funded researchers, can lead to breakthroughs against many common deadly cancers affecting adults. These include lung cancer, breast cancer, kidney cancer, brain cancer, liver cancer, prostate cancer and skin cancer.As a secondary mission, End Kids Cancer works to disseminate the vital information we acquire while we pursue our primary mission of funding the cure. That’s why we produced Steps to Hope, a free booklet that shows parents and caregivers, in just 40 pages, how to navigate the pediatric cancer research landscape and secure the cutting-edge treatments that could save their children’s lives.
