Funding novel research over four decades.
WOKC funds novel pediatric cancer research projects nationwide. WOKC's Scientific Medical Research Committee carefully analyzes and selects innovative research studies that might not receive traditional funding but will advance treatments with fewer side effects and will help increase survival rates. To date, WOKC has funded over $8 million in promising novel research that has yielded over $22 million in additional grant money from the National Cancer Institute and other significant cancer-funding organizations. Since our humble beginnings, WOKC has funded a wide range of national cancer research projects in almost every pediatric cancer category such as, Lymphoma, Leukemia, and Rhabdomyosarcoma, as well as critical programs in support of cancer care for children.
