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.

The Sunshine Project

To aggressively pursue measurable change in the way pediatric cancer research was approached and funded, NPCF formed the Sunshine Project in 2005. We bring together the nation’s top doctors and researchers to fast-track less toxic, more targeted treatments and increase the survival rate for children battling cancer.
