Why We Run

We support pediatric cancer research in honor of Carter Ankeny, of Fountain Valley, California who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on October 2, 2015 one month before his 5th birthday. He underwent chemotherapy treatments at CHOC for 21 months before finding out he relapsed on July 5, 2017 essentially starting over at day one of 3.6 years of treatment. On October 8, 2017 Carter passed away suddenly and shockingly due to a rare infection that occurred as a result of chemotherapy treatment. He was a ball of light who lived life with passion, tenacity, and immense love. Even after he was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of four years, he continued to live life to its fullest enjoying baseball, football, Legos, dancing, music, Disneyland, games, school, playing with friends and family, and so much more. His contagious smile and spirit won the hearts of many and his attitude about life and ability to thrive in the face of cancer inspired all. A #Carterstrong community was born who followed and supported Carter and his family during this journey. The kindness and generosity from this community along the journey allowed a teaching opportunity to give back to others and “hustle kindness” by pursuing and making kindness an active and intentional part of each day. When he passed suddenly, it sent shock waves to the community and all who knew him, loved him, and cared for him. Carter was a fighter, a leukemia warrior, who faced every battle and challenge head on and usually with a smile. He fought to the end and showed us what it truly meant to be #Carterstrong. We will now carry on his legacy of strength, kindness, and love by being #CarterStrongForever and pursue a cure for cancer so no one has to feel the loss like we do every day.

About Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation:
An average of 43 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer every day in the United States (almost 16,000 annually) and that number is dramatically compounded when we look worldwide: nearly 250,000 new cases of cancer affect children annually, or 700 new children affected every day around the globe (The Lancet Oncology. 2013; 14(3): e95-e103). As evidenced from these numbers, pediatric cancer is not rare – in fact, it remains the number one disease killer of all children. More children die from cancer than pediatric AIDS, asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and congenital anomalies combined (http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Sites-Types/childhood). Time will not stand still as we search for a cure, which means we must work quickly, strategically, diligently, and in collaboration to combat childhood cancer.  We thank you in advance for your thoughtful support.
Founded in 1982 by physicians, parents and community leaders, Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF) has raised over $42 Million for cancer research since its inception. This represents the persistent hard work of physicians, researchers, volunteers, staff and community partners who are dedicated to the health of our future generation—our children. Our mission has stayed true over the course of time: to improve the care, quality of life and survival rates of children with malignant diseases. Over the last 35 years, we have seen drastic improvements – survival rates for childhood cancer have risen from 10% to almost 80%.  Because of research, the cancer death rate has dropped more dramatically for children than for any other age group. However, there are still childhood cancers that have not had the same results – rare and aggressive cancers continue to devastate families and rob children of their childhoods.
Because childhood cancers still exist, PCRF presses on, funding experienced researchers as well as emerging researchers to continue the necessary work of finding cures and improvements to care. Your partnership with PCRF powers this gift of Hope. Hope for a cure, hope for aggressive treatments that attack cancer cells but leave the healthy cells, hope for long-term quality of life through safer therapies to fight cancer. Hope for new research, new protocols, new interventions.
Throughout our history of supporting pediatric cancers, we have maintained a stable foundation financially. This year we attained a Platinum rating from GuideStar. What this means for our donors is that you can have confidence in PCRF’s ability to fund the best researchers in the world, with the utmost attention to financial efficacy and transparency.
The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation has been sustained since 1982 thanks to the caring investment of individuals, organizations, and business like you!  Your trust over the years is truly valued and put to excellent use in advancing effective life saving treatments for children diagnosed with malignant disease.
PCRF is located in Irvine, California, and currently funds 13 institutions across the country. Cancer knows no boundaries, and neither do we.  We will stand vigil until a cure is found.
YOUR GIFT POWERS HOPE!
