Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation
Funding research that leads to curing childhood cancers is at the heart of everything we do at the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF).

Established in 1982, our founders - parents, doctors, friends, and community leaders - had a common vision ... "To bring hope and lifesaving treatments to children battling cancer."

Inspired by the ground-breaking research of Dr. Mitchell Cairo the Foundation quickly grew beyond its Orange County roots. Since 1982, we've raised over $36 million for cutting edge pediatric cancer research. This research has led to continuing improvements in the care, quality of life and survival rates of children with malignant diseases. We invite you to read about some of these important discoveries. Despite significant advancements over the past 30 years, cancer still claims more children's lives than asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and AIDS combined. We're diligent in our quest to give every child a cancer-free future.

Solving Kids' Cancer fosters the development of innovative clinical trials that bring more effective treatments to children both in the U.S., Europe and beyond.
