How does funding help:
Tackle Kids Cancer raises crucial funds to support pediatric cancer research occurring at the Children’s Cancer Institute at Hackensack Meridian Health. September 2020 marks the 5th Anniversary of Tackle Kids Cancer and to date, thanks to supporters like you, this program has raised over $10 million. With the help of these funds, the Children's Cancer Institute is able to provide more options, more treatments, access to more clinical trials and more importantly - more hope. From research achievements like our neuro-oncology research, sarcoma research and immunotheraphy research to supporting Cure and Beyond (a program to support the long-term health needs of pediatric cancer survivors, and one of the first survivorship programs in the country) to patient support, the work of Tackle Kids Cancer is critical for our pediatric patients and their families.
