developing cancer by age 20 is 1/330
Roughly 10,500 children under age 15 and 3,700 adolescents ages 15-19
are newly diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States.
Each day, 46 children are diagnosed with cancer
To increase access to treatment for children with cancer and life threatening diseases in need of a bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant by funding the cost to identify compatible donors, funding uninsured medical expenses and to provide support for families as they face the challenging journey towards a cure.
Kids Beating Cancer’s mission
The cost and impact on families facing pediatric cancer is immense. Kids Beating Cancer provides essential support to these families, and YOU can help!
For children with cancer and leukemia, a marrow transplant is the best — and only — hope for a cure. Without funding children can't access treatment, $2,000 testing cost is not funded by Medicaid. Every child deserves a chance!
Every $5 a child is closer to a cure! Skip 1 dessert or coffee and give a child access to the cure they deserve by following the link below

It is time to put “fun” back into fundraising. You are going to love what Kids Beating Cancer has planned for you at the HATS & HEROES BALL, on September 28th. We will take a step back in time to the prosperous Roaring 20's where you can let your inhibitions loose. Tucked away in Bonnet Creek, in the ritzy Waldorf Astoria, is our own speakeasy, a crown jewel, unlike any other; the perfect setting to enjoy an evening of roaring fun. Inspired by Gatsby’s elaborate parties in the masterpiece by F. Scott Fitzgerald, we will re-create the secret West Egg Soirees that were paid for with… shush… prohibition-fueled bootlegger money.
So Dolls start shopping for your Gatsby Glam headpieces strands of pearls, and flapper inspired evening gowns. Fellas, you will need your spiffiest black tie and top hat, derby or fedora. Get those gams in shape, as you will want to Charleston into the night with MICHAEL ANDREW and the horns and sounds of all that Jazz.
Proceeds support Kids Beating Cancer Programs, serving children from all three Central Florida Children's Hospitals and the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center, funding cost not covered by insurance or Medicaid, allowing children access to the transplant that can cure their disease while supporting the families throughout the journey.

Kids Beating Cancer
Pediatric Transplant Center
In 2011, Kids Beating Cancer established the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center at the Walt Disney Pavilion Florida Hospital for Children with a pledge of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000), which shall be used exclusively to support the Pediatric Transplant Program at Florida Hospital for Children. The Pediatric Transplant Program is a potentially lifesaving treatment for all children with one of 72 life threatening malignant and on-malignant diseases such as cancer, aplastic anemia, sickle cell anemia, and various metabolic disease.
Kids Beating Cancer made this gift to honor the memory of John Voight, the beloved son of Dr. and Mrs. Ben Guedes, in perpetuity. In recognition of this generous gift, the Center will be named the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center.
The construction of the first and only pediatric marrow transplant center in Central Florida was completed in August 2012 with a “Grand Opening” at that time. However, pediatric patients have been receiving transplants in the adult transplant center since June 2011.
Florida Hospital for Children made the following statement in regard to Kids Beating Cancer’s position as a leader in community philanthropy and community involvement.
“This generous gift represents a tremendous expression of Kids Beating Cancer’s continued commitment to children in the Central Florida community. We see your gift as a gesture of friendship and an altruistic investment to make our community a better place to live and receive healthcare. This gift will serve as a lasting example to others of how philanthropy makes our world a better place.”
Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center Programs
“Fund the Match” program funds the lab testing cost to determine if a family member is a match for a child in need of a transplant, funds the donor search for an unrelated donor when family members do not match, funds donor procurement, and the patient pre-workup, all costs never covered by Medicaid, so children get transplantation, without delays, cost per child $10,000 - $45,000.
Many children diagnosed with leukemia, cancer, sickle cell anemia, and other related diseases can be cured of their disease with the life-saving treatment of a bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant.
For many children, a transplant may be the best — and only — hope for a cure. Not all children, who could benefit from this life saving treatment, can access their only hope for a cure, due to the high cost of evaluating potential donors as well as the pretreatment testing.
Few families have the resources required prior to even beginning the transplant process.
“Fund the Match” removes the financial barriers, allowing these children access to a life saving transplant when they need it, without delays. By funding the uninsured medical expenses, children will receive their transplant at the new Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Marrow Transplant Center at Walt Disney Pavilion Florida Hospital for Children in Orlando.
“My Room” program, a ‘safe, fun, place’ during a child’s transplant. A customized, themed hospital room done according to each child’s preference, such as Disney Princess, Hello Kitty, or Toy Story with bedding, games, and toys corresponding with the theme and other age appropriate items.
The transplant process is lengthy, coupled with an extended stay away from the familiarity and comfort of the child’s own space, causing children to become very homesick. “My Room” puts the child’s distinct fingerprint on the room they will be calling home for many months.
“Kids need to feel like Kids,” programs, enhance and inspire children from diagnosis to survivorship with fun activities, quarterly parties, milestone celebrations, toys, bicycles and Kids Beating Cancer’s trademark Teddy Bear, “Bunky.”
