Who Is CureSearch?

CureSearch for Children’s Cancer is a national non-profit foundation, our mission is to end childhood cancer by driving targeted and innovative research with measurable results in an accelerated time frame. CureSearch fights every day to make treatment possible and a cure probable for the 43 children diagnosed with cancer daily.

Accelerate the Search. Find the Cure.

Research is the only way to end childhood cancer. But we cannot pursue this goal at the cost of a child’s quality of life or long term survival. We also cannot wait for the federal funding system to rise above its own bureaucracy in order to spur innovative new treatment options. We need innovative approaches now if the children of tomorrow are going to live long and healthy lives. This is why CureSearch is committed to transcending the broken system by addressing its challenges head on.

  • Accelerating the pace of cancer research via large, long term commitments to the most novel and promising science, we are driving even faster to clinical use with patients—not in ten years, not in five, but right now.
  • We are building the kind of transformative partnerships that will eliminate silos, increase collaboration, encourage invention, and help us develop targeted therapies to reduce toxicity and improve quality of life for survivors.
  • We are also closely measuring and communicating our impact on children and families—every single day.
  • Research Vision: Improve childhood cancer treatment and cures to deliver the potential for childhood cancer patients to lead long, healthy lives.
CureSearch Programs


CureSearch’s basic and translational research programs offer the greatest potential for scientists to design treatments and improve outcomes for children with difficult-to-treat cancers.

  • The Acceleration Initiative is a $10 million portfolio that addresses the most challenging barriers facing the field of children's cancer research.
  • Our Young Investigator Program provides support for young researchers and scientists conducting childhood cancer research in transformational science aimed at delivering the next generation of treatments.
  • For more than a decade, CureSearch has funded clinical trial research to ensure treatment for over 50,000 children with cancer.
  • CureSearch develops and distributes educational resources online and in print for patients and families with up-to-date, scientifically reviewed information that addresses all aspects of pediatric cancer and its treatment.
  • Additionally, in 2015 CureSearch launched the CancerCare Mobile App, an innovative mobile application for Android and iPhones that will provide free, comprehensive cancer management for parents and caregivers to share information about their child’s treatment. This will make it possible (and easy) for multiple caregivers to trade notes, symptoms, and resources about their child.

At CureSearch, we are fighting for the future every child deserves and every parent dreams their child will have. Accelerate the search. End childhood cancer. Join CureSearch today. Please contact us at 800-458-6223 or online at www.CureSearch.org to learn more.
