“Every year, hundreds of children die from diseases for which there is no cure. For us, this is an unspeakable injustice. These children are our inspiration day after day.

Fortunately, the advancement of science and the speed at which technology is evolving is fueling hope… and the donations that allow us to contribute to this progress keep our determination alive. 

To continue to move forward and achieve tangible results, research into childhood diseases needs support from governments and people like you. Now, and in the future. 

We would like to thank all of our donors, who continue to make the Pediatric Research Foundation one great source of non-governmental funding for research into childhood diseases. Let’s keep the momentum going. Together, let’s accelerate cures for kids!”
