Childhood Cancer: Information and Stories of our Heroes!

Looking for information about our research grants? Explore our new section - Where the Money Goes!

Having a child with cancer is one of the most painful and difficult situations a family can face. One in 330 children will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they turn 20.

Despite this, less than 5% of the federal government’s total funding for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancers each year. This is why your support is so important. The money we raise at ALSF funds cutting-edge medical research as well as nursing grants to improve the quality of life and care of children with cancer.

Our childhood cancer heroes’ strength and their families’ stories inspire us every day to work toward finding better treatments and cures. In this section, you can read the amazing stories of our heroes, become educated on the facts about childhood cancer, learn how we're helping families with childhood cancer and much more.

Get inspired! Together we can make a difference against childhood cancer.
