NATIONAL TACKLE KIDS CANCER DAY
National Tackle Kids Cancer Day is your chance to be part of the cure for pediatric cancer research. On September 15, join other Tackle Kids Cancer supporters and volunteer to rally our community and raise needed funds for pediatric cancer research. With only 4% of federal cancer dollars designated to pediatric cancer research, National Tackle Kids Cancer Day is our opportunity to let our voices be heard and help find a cure for pediatric cancer.
National Tackle Kids Cancer Day supports the innovative research and patient care programs at the Children’s Cancer Institute at Hackensack University Medical Center. CCI is pioneering over a dozen clinical trials to treat aggressive types of pediatric cancer. Most notably, our extensive pediatric neuro-oncology program is leading the way to establish new protocols in treating this dire diagnosis. Additionally, Tackle Kids Cancer funds the Cure and Beyond Program – one of the handful survivorship programs for pediatric cancer survivors in the country.
