As we begin work on our upcoming Strike Out Pediatric PCF Bowlathon, we continue to work towards the success of our mission in For years, Pediatric Cancer Foundation has been working towards the success of our mission in our efforts to cure childhood cancerour efforts to cure childhood cancer. Pediatric Cancer Foundation supports patient care, funds research, and provides seed money to finance new protocols and therapies for diseases that were once unbeatable. Therapies for cancer patients are perpetually evolving and much has been done, but there is still more work to do.

For over 40 years Pediatric Cancer Foundation has been committed to these goals. Over the past years we've worked diligently to recruit new friends so we can support the efforts of our doctors and their programs at the following hospitals:

  • New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital
  • Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
  • Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at NYU Langone Medical Center
  • Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York
  • Maria Fareri Children's Hospital at Westchester Medical Center

Our administrative costs are a small percent of our budget and over 90% of your dollar goes directly to the pediatric project we are funding at the hospitals that we support.

Originated in Westchester in 1970, Pediatric Cancer Foundation now has chapters located in Manhattan and New Jersey. Various fund raising events in addition to the annual bowlathon are planned throughout the year. They include annual Luncheons, Journals, Dinners, Golf Outings, a spring Bikeathon, summer camp Swimathons, and other sporting events. Our supporters continue to create their own special projects to benefit Pediatric Cancer Foundation and we are always welcome to new ideas in that effort.

Many of the techniques in treating adults with cancer were first tested and developed in children.

Every year, over 12,000 children are diagnosed with cancer.

Up to 70% of all children with cancer can now be cured.

Each year about 2,300 children and teenagers die from cancer. Cancer is over 15 times greater than AIDS in children.
