Mission Statement

CureSearch for Children’s Cancer funds and supports targeted and innovative children’s cancer research with measurable results, and is the authoritative source of information and resources for all those affected by children’s cancer.

Description

CureSearch for Children's Cancer is a national non-profit foundation whose mission is to fund and support targeted and innovative children's cancer research with measurable results, and is the authoritative source of information and resources for all those affected by children's cancer. CureSearch supports clinical trials research at local hospitals across the United States and funds basic and translational research that offers the greatest potential to design treatments and improve outcomes for children with difficult-to-treat cancers.

CureSearch raises funds through individuals, special events, corporations, and private foundations. Charitable giving is especially important now, as federal funding for children's cancer research has been flat for the last decade, and was reduced by five percent in 2011.

In the last 40 years, the overall survival rate for children's cancer has increased from 10% to 78%. At CureSearch, our goal is 100%.
