Participants decorate pumpkins in various gold-themed ways to support and bring attention to pediatric cancer. And here's the exciting part: for every golden pumpkin you decorate, Little Hero Foundation promises to give $1 to research for pediatric cancer, and we'll do this for as many as $10,000!
We focus on making the maximum positive effort for the pediatric cancer community. Our volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. We will provide solutions that make a long-lasting difference and most importantly give more children a future.
SAVE LIVES through funding targeted research dedicated to less harmful and more individualized cancer treatments.
INSPIRE HOPE for children and their families battling cancer through meaningful gifts designed to provide a glimmer of light, a spark of joy and the gift of laughter to those in need!
Cancer is the number one cause of death by disease among children. 1 in 285 children will be diagnosed with cancer. More than 95% of childhood cancer survivors will have a significant health-related issue by the time they are 45 years of age. These health-related issues are side-effects of either cancer or more commonly, the result of its treatment.
Since 1980, fewer than 10 drugs have been developed for use in children with cancer. Only 4% of federal government cancer research funding goes to study pediatric cancer.
