Annual Cocktail Party in NYC
The Children's Cancer Cause Annual Cocktail Reception and Silent Auction will be held Thursday, November 7, 2019, from 6:30-8:30 PM at the James Burden Mansion.
We will be celebrating 20 years as the voice of children with cancer, survivors, and their families at the event. In addition, we will also honor the recipient of our 2019 Leonard M. Rosen Memorial Research Award winner: Dr. David Poplack.
Creating Hope Reauthorization Act
The Creating Hope Reauthorization Act of 2019 was introduced in September 2019 and would permanently reauthorize the FDA priority review voucher program to incentivize pharmaceutical manufacturers to invest in drugs with indications for rare pediatric diseases.
Visit our Action Center to write Congress on this and other legislation that could impact kids with cancer.
Support Childhood Cancer Survivors Attending College
Our College Scholars Program offers the opportunity for childhood cancer survivors to get a "leg up" on paying for their college education. Two survivors are selected annually to receive a scholarship and gain valuable advocacy experience.
By joining our Scholar Boosters with a monthly gift of $10, you can give survivors an extra boost to move forward with their goals and dreams of college.
Webinar Highlights Survivorship
We held a webinar in September on childhood cancer survivorship, diving into the challenges facing childhood cancer survivors as they transition out of pediatric care and into young adulthood.
We thank Dr. Greg Aune of San Antonio’s Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute and Dr. Julia Rowland of the Smith Center for Healing and the Arts for sharing their expertise and perspectives with families and advocates.
Progress Report: The Latest Childhood Cancer News
2018 was a year of tremendous progress for the childhood cancer community and the Children’s Cancer Cause, headlined by passage of the bipartisan Childhood Cancer STAR Act.
Our 2018 annual report highlights legislative achievements, plus new initiative like our college scholarship program and a workshop informing the FDA on chemo-induced hearing loss.
