Annual Impact Report

After accidents, cancer is the leading cause of death in children. Thanks to treatment advancements in recent years, the survival rates for certain types of pediatric cancers have increased to 50%. However, there are still many other types that have much lower survival rates. Brain tumors can be among the deadliest with some diagnoses having survival rates as low as 1%. 

Our ultimate goal is to create a world where ALL kids can be treated for cancer and go on to lead long and healthy lives.

In total we have given over 2 MILLION DOLLARS to fund the research for a childhood cancer cure!

With each dollar funded, we get one step closer to a cure.

Who We Work With

Texas Children’s Hospital – Cancer and Hematology Centers has 4 locations and sees patients from each of the 50 states and from 56 different countries. An average of 95 children are inpatient at TCH each day.

MD Anderson – Children’s Cancer Hospital has five main locations specifically for young people and their families. MD Anderson’s Research Building also houses the pediatric neuro-oncology lab that is dedicated to AFF’s namesake, Addison Faith Bender.

Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital- prides itself in care that continues seamlessly into adulthood. Memorial Hermann works in collaboration with MD Anderson to offer new ways to diagnose childhood brain and spinal tumors.
