AppD Cares Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Fund


Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is recognized every September by childhood cancer organizations around the world. With a goal to increase awareness and raise funds for those affected by childhood cancer, September is the best opportunity to rally interest and to get others involved in the cause. AppD Cares is fortunate to have a group of impactful global nonprofit partners dedicated to finding cures and making sure that Childhood Cancer will eventually become a thing of the past. In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, AppD Cares has donated $20,000 split evenly to Children with Cancer UK, the Care-for-Rare Foundation (Germany), St. Jude Children’s Research Center and St. Baldrick’s.

Your Donation Supports

The St. Baldricks Foundation

The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer and donor powered charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – so they can focus on helping their child live.

Children with Cancer UK

CHILDREN with CANCER is the leading national children's charity in the UK dedicated to the fight against childhood leukaemia and other childhood cancers.

Care-for-Rare Foundation

The Care-for-Rare foundation was founded so that children suffering from rare diseases can gain quicker access to modern genetic diagnoses and innovative therapeutic methods. As opposed to other humanitarian initiatives the Care-for-Rare Foundation is unique in that it combines giving children with rare diseases the care they need, with research aimed at understanding the underlying processes behind the diseases and so allowing for the development of new treatments.The Care-for-Rare Foundation works together with an international network of doctors and researchers. Currently the Care-for-Rare Foundation is primarily supporting clinical research into diseases of the blood and the immune system. Modern genetic research on rare diseases will hopefully yield insights into the general biological principles behind the diseases. This knowledge will serve not only to help patients with rare diseases, but will also enable a new understanding of the underlying principles behind frequent diseases, as well as the development of new treatments in the context of personalised and individualised medical treatments.
