Mission: The mission of the national children's cancer society (nccs) is to improve the quality of life for children with cancer and their families worldwide.
Programs: Program service - the national children's cancer society, through its patient and family services division, offers programs that provide a range of services responsive to the needs of children with cancer and their families. The family support program, transportation assistance fund, and emergency assistance funds provide emotional and financial support to families throughout the united states during their child's cancer treatment. By eliminating some of the psychological and financial hardships associated with cancer, families can stay focused on the health and well-being of the child. Beyond the cure: life after diagnosisan individual is considered a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis through the balance of his or her life. The goal of the beyond the cure survivorship program is to provide the most up-to-date information on survivorship to help survivors adapt and celebrate life after diagnosis. It provides a web-based information center providing late effects information and proprietary assessment tool, college scholarships, links to additional resources and educational materials.

The national children's cancer society also provides informational brochures to educate the public on how they can help children with cancer by donating blood for needed transfusions and by volunteering to donate marrow or cord blood for potentially life-saving transplants.
global outreach program - providing pharmaceuticals and medical supplies to treat children with cancer around the world.
I'm not saying that NCCS isn't legitimate, or that they don't help or that they are a scam. What I can say is that the caller today was told that we wouldn't be donating and when they were told that it was because of their rating here the response was that they had to pay to get reviewed. A quick search of Charity Navigator shows that's not the case so NCCS is lying to discredit CN.
