Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation (NVCCF) is a non-profit organization, established in 1993, which offers over 45 programs and services including a variety of educational programming, financial support and counseling for critically-ill children and their families living in Southern Nevada. The foundation's mission is to work side by side with the medial community to provide social, emotional, educational, financial and psychological support services and programs to families of ALL children diagnosed with a life threatening or critical illness such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, sickle cell, renal disorders, blood and immunologic diseases as well as to adults diagnosed with cancer. In 2011, NCCF incorporated The Caring Place, which provides healing arts, support groups, and wellness therapies to adults with cancer as well as to their caregivers.
Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation is a local organization and not affiliated with any national organization and therefore relies on community support to continue and grow its programs.

Founded in 2007, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation is a nonprofit organization that has consistently worked to increase access to life-saving medical treatment for those affected by a number of diseases and conditions.
What’s making us different from most other medical treatment centers is that we never turn a patient away from treatment for financial reasons. Our Charity Care Program, funded by generous donors and through fundraisers, ensures that all patients receive the treatment they need.
