#erasekidcancer 2017

If we had one wish it would be that no child would ever experience cancer. That's why we're asking you to join forces with Cook Children's oncologists, researchers, patients and families to help make that wish come true.

The funds we raise together during September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, will support life-saving research, treatments, technology and programs for patients and families at Cook Children's in Fort Worth, Texas. Please help us create hope for kids, families and caregivers who are fighting every day to #erasekidcancer.

Educate yourself on Cook Children's cancer research

The world of cancer treatment continues to evolve as pediatric oncologists across the globe team up to battle childhood cancer. Doctors share diagnostic tools used to identify cancers, treatment plans and modifications of treatment, (including timing of scans, surgery, radiation, dosing of medications and minimizing toxic side effects.) These collaborative efforts continue to improve the fight against pediatric cancer. And, because Cook Children's partners with various consortiums and sites for clinical research,  patients can receive treatment close to home. Our oncologists and researchers, take an active role in bringing leading, innovative therapies to patients.
