Mission Statement

Chase After a Cure is a Non Profit Corporation dedicated to children's cancer research. We raise awareness for children's cancer and provide funding for research labs who specialize in children's cancer research. Our main focus for research is the more aggressive and deadly cancer called neuroblastoma.

Description

CAAC was established in 2009 and received its 501(c)(3) status in 2010 by a mother whose son, Chase, was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer called Neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is a rare and deadly cancer that affects approximately 750 children a year. It is rare, but the most common solid tumor cancer diagnosed in infants (less than 2 years old) and the third most common cancer in children under the age of 5. The survival rate for children diagnosed with high risk Neuroblastoma is less than 30%.
