While many of us await the news of what teacher our child got, 43 parents today are getting the news that their child as cancer.

Team G Childhood Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting families fighting pediatric cancer and funding new and innovative treatments to ultimately cure childhood cancer. Since we started our mission just a year ago, Team G has donated over $98,000 to pediatric cancer research. We have also provided over 900 Hope Totes to families with newly diagnosed children. Your baking help will help us ensure we can continue to provide help and funding to much needed research.
“Every day, 43 Children are diagnosed with childhood cancer, and every day, 7 children lose their lives to cancer.”
If you are wondering why there is a need to raise money for pediatric cancer research, it might come as a surprise that pediatric cancer is the number one disease killer in the U.S. of children under the age of 18. In fact, it kills more children than asthma, AIDS, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis combined. Unfortunately, pediatric cancer receives a very small percentage of the National Cancer Institute’s $4.8 billion annual budget and almost no research and development dollars from pharmaceutical companies.
If children are our most precious resource, why wouldn’t we do everything in our power to keep them safe? It’s our responsibility and obligation to protect them and our future.
