Thanks to your generous support and commitment to our cause, Pediatric Cancer Foundation continues to contribute to leading pediatric oncology institutions. We are proud to currently support 12 cutting-edge research projects. Through your generosity, we have added Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and John Hopkins University to our elite group of PCF funded hospitals.

Read more about the critical projects we fund.


Our largest single contribution to date ($1 Million!) was given to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to help fund a planned first-in-human phase 1 clinical trial led by Sarah K. Tasian, MD, which will use a new immunotherapy to target the FLT3 receptor protein in high-risk pediatric leukemias.

Your donations are making a difference!


Cocktails for a Cure

On November 16th, we gathered together at Moderne Barn in Armonk, NY for our annual gala, Cocktails for a Cure. There's no greater way to spend an evening than with our PCF Community raising money for a worthwhile cause, to eradicate pediatric cancer. Thank you to everyone who showed up, for digging deep and for sharing your love and generosity in helping us achieve our mission.

Our first PCF Ambassador Award

Pediatric Cancer Foundation honored Gigi Ambrosio at Cocktails for a Cure for her drive and determination to defeat cancer. Gigi is an inspiration to us and others in her personal mission to eradicate children's cancer.

Our Keynote Speaker, Chris Lamberto

Chris and his family have continuously supported our charity after he was diagnosed with cancer at 6 years old. Chris takes his chance at life as an opportunity to give back however he can, to build a legacy of goodness and generosity that ripples out into the world.

Congratulations to PCF's Brooklyn Chapter, chaired by the Lamberto family, for hosting their PCF Comedy Night on November 4th and raising $20,000

On December 3, our incredible Junior Committee successfully raised over $25,000 for pediatric cancer research during our second annual Zoom Trivia Night. Adam Baranker, a loyal friend of PCF, served as the host, leading 25 teams consisting of over 100 high school students through an hour of mind-bending fun and fundraising. We are immensely proud of these teenagers for their efforts and participation in this special event.
