The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF) is shifting this year’s Bid for the Kids gala scheduled for Thursday, November 19, 2020 to a simple call to action event. While we will miss the opportunity to be together as a community of cure seekers, we remain deeply committed to advancing pediatric cancer research forward because it is just as essential today as ever. Please support this mission as we walk together toward a full and healthy life for all children facing childhood cancer.
The need for funding traditionally raised by the Bid for the Kids gala is intensifying. All signs indicate that we will need to brace for significant and sustained economic damage as a result of the pandemic. Our best chance of fortifying our funding so research can continue without a loss of momentum during the next year and a half is by asking for your assistance.
Join us in raising $150,00 to ensure ongoing funding for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation Laboratory directed by Mitchell S. Cairo, M.D. at the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center and New York Medical College. The good news is: 100% of all donations will go directly to Dr. Cairo’s life-saving research. Your continued support is essential to maintaining the forward momentum of research advancements for pediatric cancer patients.
PCRF is thrilled to recognize this year’s Dream Big Award recipient — The George M. Van Cleave Family Foundation. The Van Cleave Family has demonstrated a dedicated spirit of support for PCRF and especially the work of Dr. Mitchell Cairo. We are grateful for their leadership and partnership over the past ten years. They, like you, are invested in improving the lives of children living with cancer and we are indebted to your collective support.
PCRF continues the critical work of championing leading edge research that promises the best hope for a cure for childhood cancer. Together, we can advance pediatric cancer research.
Share photos, stories, videos, and dedications to the patients, survivors, fellow donors, and to Dr. Cairo. This page will serve as our 2020 Bid for the Kids digital and interactive program.
100% of all donations will go directly to Dr. Cairo’s life-saving research. Your continued support is essential to maintaining the forward momentum of research advancements for pediatric cancer patients.
