TRIUMPH OVER KID CANCER FOUN...

TOKC Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Our mission at Triumph Over Kid Cancer has been defined by the painful and tortuous deaths of the many children who have died from Osteosarcoma and other Pediatric Bone Cancers. The mission is necessary because these bone cancers strike around 1500 kids a year, and the number seems to be rising. While that seems like a lot of people, it is not enough people to make a large profitable drug market. As a result, drug companies have no significant financial incentive to spend money on research on Pediatric Bone Cancer. This is exemplified by the fact that there has been no significant change improving mortality in the treatment of Osteosarcoma in the last 25 years. Therefore, our primary mission is to raise funds to try to improve treatment and survivability of Pediatric Bone Cancer. We will set aside 90% of our proceeds to go to research. M.D. Anderson Cancer Hospital has agreed to MATCH those funds on a Dollar for Dollar basis and use all funds for research in Pediatric Sarcoma. The work will be done under the auspices of the Children's Sarcoma Initiative, and will feature a committee to solicit new research ideas in this area and fund those most likely to lead to progress. Also, because early diagnosis greatly improves prognosis, we will work on educational efforts to increase awareness of bone cancer's signs and symptoms in parents and their pediatricians. Finally, since the life of pediatric bone cancer patients is so difficult, we will set aside 10% of our proceeds to help fund the Sunshine Kids Organization which works tirelessly to bring some brief periods of happiness to the lives of these children.


We are proud to state that due to hard work by many volunteers, 100% of funds raised go directly to the activities listed above without administrative expenses.
