CureSearch, formerly the National Childhood Cancer Foundation, funds and supports children's cancer research and provides information and resources to all those affected by children's cancer. CureSearch is a national non-profit foundation supports clinical trials research at more than 175 local hospitals across the United States. These hospitals participate in National Cancer Institute sponsored clinical trials conducted by the Children's Oncology Group. Through the CureSearch Investigational Research Initiative, CureSearch also funds basic and translational research that offers the greatest potential to design treatments and improve outcomes for children with difficult-to-treat cancers. CureSearch raises funds through individuals, special events, corporations, and private foundations. Charitable giving is especially important now, as federal funding for children's cancer research has been flat for the last decade, and was reduced by five percent in 2011. CureSearch also manages the operations center of the Children's Oncology Group, the largest cooperative research entity in the world. With more than 6,500 physicians, nurses and other researchers, COG member hospitals treat 90% of children in the United States with cancer. In the last 40 years, the overall survival rate for children's cancer has increased from 10% to 78%. At CureSearch, our goal is 100%.
