Mission:
Kids Beating Cancer’s mission is to provide resources and support for children with cancer, leukemia and related life threatening diseases throughout the treatment process. By funding pre-transplant testing and donor identification, costs never covered by Medicaid and only partially covered by insurance, any child can have access to stem cell transplantation, the best – and only hope for a cure. This testing is provided at no cost at the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center, regardless of the transplanting hospital.

THE HEART OF OUR MISSION: children in need of marrow and stem cell transplants.

OUR CORE OBJECTIVE: helping children and their families before, during and after transplantation.
Because all a family should worry about is helping their child live!

Since 1992, Kids Beating Cancer:
Over 7,500 children served
Over 37,000 potential donors tested
Over 11 million dollars raised
