Richi childhood Cancer Foundation

Lost to cancer
More children are lost to cancer in the U.S. and developed countries than any other disease.
Each 3 minutes
Worldwide, more than 175,000 new families suffer through childhood cancer each year.
Long term effects
More than 73% of survivors will have a chronic health problem forever.
Lack of funding
The National Cancer Institute of the US only invests 4% for childhood cancer research funding.

More than 12 types

Research is challenging because there are more than 12 types of childhood cancers and countless subtypes.

Cannot be prevented

The causes of most childhood cancers are unknown, are not related to lifestyle factors, and cannot be prevented like in adults.

20% of Cancer kids

Only 20% of cancer kids can be diagnosed early while many adults survive due to early prevention.

Isolation

The combination of the physical and intellectual impairments and the emotional impact of cancer, can greatly affect a child’s social world.

Specific research

Brain tumors are the deadliest forms of childhood cancer, unlike those in adults, and require specific research.

Non profit business

Pharmaceutical companies often shy away from developing childhood cancer drugs because of low profit levels.

"A social obligation to ensure every child has a chance in life is the greatest responsibility that any individual can ever have"

what we do ?

  • we make them smile

    We help alleviate the strain that a life threating illness puts upon children with cancer and their family members through providing a relaxing, carefree, and enjoyable environment.

    The diagnosis and treatment of cancer is a stressful and threatening experience that can be emotionally devastating to children. Despite the improved prognosis, the course of cancer treatment has a tremendous impact on children. Now imagine a bright, welcoming, friendly, and safe place with lots of entertainment and fun things to do. A place where children with cancer and their families could enjoy themselves during outpatient treatments, this is the Richi House Project.
  • we support finding a cure

    We support research investigations focused on finding cures for childhood cancer and to give survivors long and healthy lives.

    We deal with leading pediatric hospitals and research centers, establishing the necessary partnerships that allow us to support them financially for finding cures, this is the Richi Research Project.

    Our Scientific Advisory Board guides our steps and helps us to identify which research projects will make the greatest impact for cancer kids.
