About the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation
The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF), a non-profit organization located in Irvine, was founded in 1982 to improve the care, quality of life and survival rate of children with malignant diseases. Since its inception, PCRF has raised over $22 million dollars to fund cutting edge research that leads to medically sound treatment protocols for childhood cancers. Much progress has been made - for example, childhood leukemia, once almost certainly fatal, now has a 70% survival rate. But the battle is far from over, as cancer continues to afflict more children under 18 years of age each year than any other disease. Visit PCRF online to learn more: http://www.PCRF-Kids.org.
