Mission Statement

Inspired by nine year old Killian Owen's battle with leukemia, Curing Kids' Cancer Inc. is a unique, national grassroots movement which aims to raise both awareness and money to find cures for all types of childhood cancer. Our programs fund the development of cutting edge therapies which will revolutionize childhood cancer treatment by replacing traditional chemotherapy. Our objective is to turn this killer disease into a curable one in our lifetime.

Description

Curing Kids' uses a simple concept: Children often buy their coach or teacher an end-of-year-gift. We encourage these children to donate the money on behalf of their coach or teacher. In return, the coach receives a t-shirt and a certificate, and the teacher can receive a tote bag and a certificate. The money goes to cutting edge pediatric cancer research.

We have two main programs - Coaches Curing Kids' Cancer and Teachers Curing Kids' Cancer. Both are devoted to raising money to support cutting-edge cancer treatments for children. We believe that by redirecting money from kids' sports teams, we can honor coaches and teachers and make a difference in the future of pediatric cancer treatment.

Both Coaches Curing Kids' Cancer and Teachers Curing Kids' Cancer raise money throughout the United States and fund research and development at local pediatric cancer treatment centers.
