Our foundation makes a difference in the lives of kids with cancer and other debilitating diseases in our community.

These families are often stressed with extreme financial burdens and emotional hardships. Kids of Love is an advocate for research, awareness for childhood cancer and other childhood debilitating illnesses. We provide a support system for these children and help turn frowns upside down.

“We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in our hands to make a difference.” ~Nelson Mandela

Kids of Love strives to encourage that passion of making a difference in school-age children and young adults. The foundation is designed to help make a difference, no matter how young the volunteer may be. We are a collaboration between adults and children working together to benefit kids in need and help make their lives a little better.

THE CHILDHOOD CANCER PROJECT

>Website

The Childhood Cancer Project in a nonprofit, 501(c)3 which funds rare, child and adolescent cancer research.

Like the brave children and families that inspire us, we are relentless. Like the brilliant and dedicated scientists pioneering breakthrough research, we are bold. Like the generous community that supports us, we are united. Please join our mission, help us lead the way in treating and defeating childhood cancer.

Cancer is bad enough. But when it affects a child, it is particularly devastating. Because kids deserve a chance to experience life. To laugh and have fun. To be amazed and to dream. To grow up.

Every year, there are over 250,000 new cases of cancer that affect children under the age of 20 worldwide, that’s over 700 kids diagnosed with cancer every single day. Despite this, childhood cancer research is severely underfunded.

Unfortunately, we can’t count on federal funding to help kids with cancer. Not only has there been an alarming decrease in budgets, but less than 4% of the NCI’s federal funding goes towards research for all childhood cancers, combined.

Cancer statistics: 

Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease for children in the U.S. Survival rates can vary depending on the type of cancer.

About 420,000 childhood cancer survivors live in the U.S., with many more around the world.

Our Story 
The Childhood Cancer Project was founded by the parents, family members, and friends of Joshua Segal, who began his battle with osteosarcoma, a rare type of childhood cancer in 2015.

We are committed to funding rare child, adolescent, and young adult cancer research and to the development of more effective and less toxic treatments for cancer’s youngest warriors.

Please help us “Develop Cures” and “Deliver Hope.”
