One Mission is a pediatric cancer foundation that does whatever it takes to help kids get through cancer. We just do it in a different way. Rather than fund long-term solutions like research, One Mission Programs and Services provide immediate relief from the relentless wrath cancer unleashes every single day. Programs and Services that lift the spirits of patients and their families, help the healing and recovery process and make life a little easier during treatment and hospitalization. All of our Programs and Services directly benefit children and adolescents diagnosed with cancer, the families who support them, and the medical community who compassionately cares for them.
The inspiration behind One Mission came from the founders’ own personal journey with pediatric cancer. They spent six months living at Boston Children’s Hospital while their infant son underwent treatment. During their journey, they identified many ways life could be improved for both patients and their families. Their experience inspired them to start a foundation that would help to ease the devastating toll this disease takes on both patients and their families.
