More than $7 million funded resulting in an additional $22 million in funding.
WOKC focuses on funding novel pediatric cancer research projects nationwide. We carefully select innovative research studies that might not receive traditional funding but will advance treatments with fewer side effects and help increase survival rates. To date, WOKC has funded over $7 million in pilot research, including over $510 thousand funded in 2021, that has yielded over $22 million in additional grant money from the National Cancer Institute and other significant cancer-funding organizations.
