National Pediatric Cancer Foundation
The National Pediatric Cancer Society (NPCF) is an organization dedicated to funding research to find less toxic, and more targeted therapies to eliminate childhood cancer. Through a collaborative research network with top oncologists and researchers across the country, NPCF is accelerating the speed at which treatments can be discovered and thus improving the outcomes of childhood cancers.
Over the past few years, we have gifted $125,000 to NPCF to support the Sunshine Project, which is a collaborative network of the nation's leading doctors and hospitals leading research for basic science, treatment initiatives, and clinical trials.
In June 2020, Love Your Melon also gave an additional $50,000 to the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation to support their new initiative, the Safety Net Grant Program. This Program assists low-income families where a child is undergoing cancer treatment. This program will provide grants of up to $1,000 per family to assist with eligible treatment based costs. Love Your Melon's contribution will be allocated to families of the Black Community across the country under financial stress who have children undergoing cancer treatment.
