Empowering Students to Fight for a Cause

Students Funds the Cure was formed when the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation learned about the passion of Lexie Mulvihill to carry on her brother’s wish of fighting to find a cure for pediatric cancer. Lexie’s brother Jake passed away in March of 2020. Read the full story here

Knowing the importance of empowering and providing opportunities for our youth to make a difference; Students Fund the Cure will now provide a platform for students to create their own Team to raise awareness and funds for the NPCF at individual schools, college campuses, as well as giving opportunities for teams to be created with businesses throughout communities around the country.

Jake’s wish will now be carried out through the incredible young people who have chosen to become part of the NPCF’s Students Fund the Cure. These students will be making a huge difference in the lives of children battling pediatric cancer and their families. Thank you, students, and all those that are supporting our mission across our nation!
