What makes the NPCF so different?

A majority of cancer research focuses on adult treatments and is done within the walls of individual institutions.  In contrast, we fund clinical trials and COLLABORATE with a network of cutting-edge hospitals across the nation to fast track less-toxic, more targeted treatments.
All to increase the survival rate of children battling cancer.
