The National Children's Cancer Society (NCCS) provides emotional, financial and educational support to children with cancer, their families and survivors.

The NCCS is a 501C(3) non-profit organization that is proud to meet all of the Better Business Bureau's "Standards of Charity Accountability," which includes a comprehensive, in-depth evaluation of charity governance, fundraising practices, solicitations and informational materials.

In 1987, a relatively new and expensive procedure known as bone marrow transplantation (BMT) was becoming recognized as a viable treatment for certain cancers. Despite this recognition, most insurance companies considered BMTs experimental and would not fund them.

It was for this reason the NCCS was started – because every child with cancer deserves every chance to live.

Since 1987, the NCCS has provided over $62 million in direct financial assistance to more than 38,000 children with cancer. The organization works closely with over 300 hospitals and pediatric oncology treatment centers throughout U.S. and reaches thousands more through our ongoing education programs and materials.
