More than $7 million funded resulting in an additional $22 million in funding.
In its 40 year history, WOKC has provided $7 million in seed money for its novel research projects, which have received $22 million in additional grant money over these past 40 years. Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer has maintained focus on childhood cancer research by funding projects to increase survival rate, provide better treatment, and help doctors understand better this vicious disease.
FACT: Cancer is the leading disease killer of children in the United States, claiming the lives of almost 1,800 children annually. 15,500 children are diagnosed with pediatric cancer each year.
Children are fighting valiantly to survive cancer, and WOKC has been steadfast in its pursuit since 1980 to cure it!
Our mission is simple: to work relentlessly for a day when cancer is no longer a threat to ANY child. Join us in funding pediatric cancer research – even just one child with cancer is one child too many.
