Your resource for CKc’s grant process
to treating pediatric cancer.
Cannonball Kids’ cancer Foundation (CKc) prioritizes funding clinical trials, research that is nearing translation to a clinical trial, and young investigator grants.
Grants funded by CKc must be innovative and provide better quality of life or symptom relief than current treatments.
When possible, CKc will prioritize funding research:
- with a focus on cancers that are under-funded or under-researched,
- with a focus on patient populations who are traditionally underserved.
When possible, CKc will prioritize funding researchers of diverse backgrounds.
For CKc, “innovation” means the invention or application of novel methods or treatments, specifically treatments that have fewer side-effects than standard care, increase a child’s quality of life, and/or create an option for care where there otherwise were few or none (either on primary diagnosis, relapse, or for recalcitrant cancers).
