More than 15,500 children are diagnosed with pediatric cancer each year.
Cancer is the leading disease killer of children in the United States, claiming the lives of almost 1,800 children annually. Children are fighting valiantly to survive cancer, and WOKC has been steadfast in its pursuit since 1980 to cure it! In its 40 year history, WOKC has provided millions of dollars to fund innovative and novel research projects targeting pediatric cancer. WOKC also focuses on treatment protocols that will increase survival rates. Our mission is simple: to work relentlessly for a day when ALL children are living cancer-free. Join us in funding pediatric cancer research – even just one child with cancer is one child too many.
