This wonderful foundation finds and supports cutting-edge pediatric cancer treatments that reach kids when they are sick. They know time is of the essence when a child is diagnosed. The foundation runs with maximum efficiency with an all-volunteer board and minimal expenses. I can't think of a more worthy cause or a more committed organization

Tay-bandz and the Matthews family define what philanthropy is all about. Taylor Matthews started the foundation while being treated for cancer and her family has continued her mission, determined to be guided by helping others not by grieving.
This is a well-run organization that gives all the money it raises to cutting-edge research to help kids today. The passion is infinite. Tay-bandz is a personal inspiration and will make the difference in curing pediatric cancer.

Tay-Bandz is Conquering Kidz Cancer!

Almost 100% of every dollar raised is invested in Precision Medicine for pediatric cancer patients. Their efforts deliver customized treatments that target the precise characteristics of the child’s cancer and increase odds of destroying it.

I give my time to Tay-Bandz/ Conquering Kidz Cancer so children with cancer are not robbed of their lives.

Tay-bandz is about kids curing cancer. Besides being committed to making childhood cancer a thing of the past, they are committed to creating opportunities for children and young adults to have an impact. Armed with the knowledge that each pediatric cancer diagnosis ripples beyond the family, into the playground and the community, Tay-bandz has articulated a path which makes philanthropy readily accessible, even to the young. Much time is spent partnering with the young on creating and organizing events of all sizes; opportunities for people of all ages to be heard and to learn; to learn about themselves and the pleasure of working to bring about change.

Taylor and her self-starting charity were inspirational in their message and their simplicity. She made a difference as one person trying to make a difference and had an impact one kid at a time.

Taylor Matthews started tay-bandz with two thoughts in mind. First, that it would all be worth it if we could save the life of even one child. The second was that someday no child would ever have to face cancer. She died waiting to get the drugs that might have saved her life.

Today the first goal has been achieved. Original research funded by Tay-bandz has saved numerous children whose prognosis was hopeless. Half a dozen kids are having birthdays instead of memorials.

The second goal is up to us. Even modest sums can feel like a tidal waive in the world of pediatric cancer research. These kids need a champion. Will you be there champion?

tay-bandz is raising awareness and funding cutting edge research at Columbia University where each child's individual germ line is sequenced to identify DNA mutations. They are saving one life, one family at a time! It is a fabulous organization to work for.

The funds that Tay-Bandz raises directly impact the world of cancer research. I feel confident and inspired supporting, and donating to, this organization because I know that my work and contributions are making a real difference. They operate on a very lean budget, and support research that is innovative, new, and already has a proven track record of success. This is a well run and highly necessary organization.

Tay-bandz is an amazing nonprofit that truly focuses on much needed an severely underfunded research. Volunteering for them is an honor, and is a fulfilling activity. You know that you are actually moving the needle because the research they fund is getting tangible results. I would definitely recommend them to other volunteers!!!

Kidz Curing Cancer (Tay-Bandz) is a nonprofit with heart and soul. The people that work on its behalf care deeply about the cause and about each other. They are committed to changing the way that funding for pediatric cancer works and they are committed to shedding light on just how deeply the cause of pediatric cancer is ignored. I had the pleasure of attending Childhood Cancer Action Days this past summer on behalf of the organization and got the opportunity to lobby legislators in D.C. Tay-Bandz facilitated the telling of our story and helped to give a voice to victims and survivors of childhood cancer. It was a truly moving, life-changing experience that would not have been possible if it hadn't been for this organization.

Tay-Bandz is a world-class non-profit. The volunteers and the executive board are infinitely professional and immensely dedicated to the cause. In volunteering for tay-bandz I found that, unlike other successful charities, this non-profit allowed me to really contribute as they avoid bureaucracy and politics. It is important for everyone to know that tay-bandz has one of the lowest overhead costs of any national charity, and every donation and volunteer hour has tangible results in the remarkable research lab. A wonderful experience overall.

Years ago, a mother's greatest concern was getting an extra chaperone for sixth grade camp because her daughter sleep walked and she was worried she might wander at night. That child, Taylor, never made it to sixth grade camp. Instead, she and her family started their battle with Taylor's cancer. Unfortunately for all who had the privilege of knowing Taylor, she passed away about five years later. Taylor wasted no time during those five years. From her hospital bed she began fund raising to help raise money to research cures for pediatric cancers. Her family, especially her mother, have continued those efforts in the hope of helping other families avoid their tragedy. Taylor's mom and the rest of her family and board members give so much. This is a wonderful charity which finacially helps to fill the gap left by the government to help find innovative and effective cures for pediatric cancers.
