What We Do
The mission of Hope on Wheels is to raise awareness for childhood cancer, donate life-saving research funds and celebrate the lives of children affected by this disease. The program provides grants to eligible institutions nationwide pursuing innovative pediatric cancer research. These grants are designed to develop new treatments and ultimately a cure.
Every 36 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer in the U.S., the equivalent of an entire classroom. This adds up to almost 15,000 new cases of childhood cancer each year. However, only 3% of federal cancer funds are allocated to pediatric cancers. Because of this we are committed to providing the much-needed support in the fight against childhood cancer. Hope On Wheels’ ultimate goal is to fund the needed research that will bring about the day when no child ever has to hear the words, “You have cancer.”
