"PCF has been a leader in the field of pediatric oncology. Our volunteer-driven efforts work to fund specific projects and doctors at our partner hospitals that are making a tremendous impact in the lives of young children and their families, who are battling this illness," says Cheryl Rosen, PCF President.
Founded in 1970, Pediatric Cancer Foundation supports doctors at leading hospitals in finding a cure for childhood cancer. The Foundation raises money for patient treatment, research and acquisition of state-of-the art equipment and parent-patient care. PCF's partner hospitals include:
More than 2,300 children will die each year from cancer. Each year PCF invites walkers to help raise awareness and much needed funds to fight childhood cancers, the causes of which are still unknown and at present cannot be prevented.
