Our Mission and Goals
Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for children with cancer and their families by providing financial assistance and compassionate support programs while advocating for increased research funds and raising public awareness.
NNCCF will provide help, hope and courage so that no family faces childhood cancer alone. Our vision is to enrich the lives of children and their families who are diagnosed with cancer in the Northern Nevada region. We will do this by striving to ease the heavy financial and emotional burden that these families face. We will educate our community so that, together we can dedicate more resources to put toward the fight. We will support research so that our children receive the best possible treatment, and one day, a cure will be found.
Our goals are:
- To alleviate the financial burden and emotional strain that comes with the battle against childhood cancer.
- To enhance and expand public awareness of childhood cancer.
- To promote research to find a cure.
- To be proactive in assisting families throughout the treatment journey by connecting them with other national, regional and local resources.
