What exactly does CURE Childhood Cancer fund?

CURE Childhood Cancer’s vision is to find a cure for childhood cancer in our lifetime.  We at CURE believe this is fully attainable and in efforts to get their we focus on three areas: research into childhood cancer, the most critical and urgent needs of patients and their families and eduction to support the future caregivers and researches who work tirelessly to find a cure and be their for our families.  

What exactly does CURE fund?

  • Research into the development of “targeted therapies” – that focus only cancer cells and do not harm surrounding healthy cells. Targeted therapies are critical to ensuring that patients are spared the devastating and often life-threatening “late effects” caused by current conventional therapies
  • Basic and clinical research
  • Training of future pediatric oncologists and researchers through the fellowship program at Emory University School of Medicine
  • Emergency financial assistance for families stricken by childhood cancer
  • Professional development and continuing education efforts for nurses, family support team members, and others caring for children with cancer
  • Innovative programs that address the critical and urgent needs of patients and their families, such as meals to inpatient families, outreach at the time of diagnosis, and bereavement support
