Rates of cancer in children have been rising slightly for the past few decades.

Leukemias, brain and central nervous system tumors, and lymphomas are consistently the most common types of cancer diagnosis amongst children.

Children are most likely to have positive outcomes when their cancer is detected early, and they are treated by specialists, at specialized children's cancer hospitals and centers.

Some families are unable to access such specialists due to distance, financial challenges and other barriers.

With your help, there is hope for our littlest cancer warriors.  Here at the American Childrens Cancer Benevolence Fund, administered by A Warriors Mission, we are dedicated to collaborating with hospitals, medical centers and other organizations to identify those families most distressed as a direct result of their child’s malignancy in order to assist with medical bills, treatment costs, equipment, transportation needs and other overwhelming expenses.

We serve children and their families with out discrimination.  We view all families as deserving of respect and dignity. Timely, temporary assistance can sustain a family until a long term plan is developed and implemented.   

Financial assistance provided by American Childrens Cancer Benevolence Fund, administered by A Warriors Mission, Inc. is made possible because of generous donors.  It is imperative that these funds be available for families and individuals.  To request assistance, please visit out assistance page here.
