Every single day more than 40 children are diagnosed with cancer and families’ lives are turned upside down. When parents are faced with the overwhelming stress of having a child with cancer, they need to put everything aside and focus on getting the best possible treatment to save their child’s life.
The average cost of treating childhood cancer is a staggering $833,000. It would be impossible for any parent to prepare for the emotional and financial toll childhood cancer takes on a family. But we’re here to help… NO MATTER WHAT. Whether it is across town or across the country, because of you we can provide the financial assistance to travel to lifesaving treatment.

Hazel was just two years old when diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Hazel and her mom or dad made the over 200 mile trip to the hospital a minimum of twice a month for treatment. Their travel costs added up quickly. Thankfully, the NCCS stepped in to provide financial support for the journeys to and from the hospital.
The Beyond the Cure Ambassador Scholarship Program awards college scholarships to childhood cancer survivors who have demonstrated the ability to overcome the difficult challenges of cancer with determination and motivation. Forty (40) $3,500 scholarships will be awarded each academic year.
