The Child Cancer Fund is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to assisting children and their families through the challenges of a childhood cancer diagnosis and treatment. The non-profit organization was established in 1994 by a group of Jacksonville parents whose children were receiving treatment for cancer at Wolfson Children’s Hospital and Nemours Children’s Specialty Care.

This grass roots organization raised funds to provide Nemours Children’s Specialty Care with a financial grant to secure the position of a Child Life Specialist and to provide financial assistance to the parents of children battling cancer. Today, we are committed to walking SIDE BY SIDE with children and their families every step of the way.
