Mission: Our mission is dedicated to raise awareness, fund research to develop less toxic, more effective treatments for childhood cancers with a particular interest in Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma (ERMS), and financially assist pediatric patients and their families going through treatment.
Childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded and children deserve so much more! As a team we strive to make the lives of patients and family members a little less stressful by helping support their financial needs and struggles. Our Vision is that there will be a day when no child will face the uncertainty of cancer and that successful treatments will not result in negative, long-term effects.

The Conte Family has taken their loss and turned it around to make a positive impact with the pediatric cancer families. They are working hard through their foundation to assist families with pediatric cancer and raise money for research in Rhabdomyosarcoma. In a short amount of time, their progress is amazing.
DCF shows true dedication and commitment in making a difference for cancer families while also contributing funds for research. Money is carefully managed so that they can help as many families as possible. With all the nonprofits out there, I know I can give confidently to DCF as good stewards.
Daniela Conte Foundation is an all volunteer staff so the donations received go directly to the cause and I love that. This foundation is doing such great things for their community and always do their best to raise awareness for their cause. They also serve local families whose children have pediatric cancer. There efforts also go to help fund critical research to find a cure for pediatric cancers. Their dedication and passion is not only inspiring to me but to all who know them.
Such an amazingly dedicated organization that funds Rhabdomyosarcoma research, supports children and their families as they fight cancer and spreads childhood cancer awareness. A great organization all the way around!
