The Children’s Cancer Foundation, Inc. (CCF) is an independent nonprofit whose mission is to raise funds to support facilities, research and programs to aid in the treatment and cure of pediatric cancer.
CCF is not affiliated with any national charity. We are a major force in fighting cancer in Maryland, D.C. and Northern Virginia.
Since our founding in 1983 by Shirley Howard, and with the dedication of hundreds of volunteers and a small staff, CCF has awarded over $36.6 M to area hospitals and researchers to treat and cure childhood cancers.
Through generous support from corporations and individuals, CCF has built Pediatric Oncology Units and facilities at:
- The Johns Hopkins Hospital
- Sinai Hospital
- The University of Maryland Medical System
- The Children’s National Health System
- Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center and The Children’s Inn at NIH
CCF also invests in research through the awarding of grants to researchers and institutions.
