Team Strong Hope Program

Why we fund research

There are major Funding Disparities that’s why!!

  • Childhood cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded.
  • In 20 years the FDA has initially approved only one drug for any childhood cancer – 1/2 of all chemo-therapies used for children’s cancers are over 25 years old
  • Research and development for new drugs from pharmaceutical companies comprises 60% of funding for adult cancer drugs and close to zero for childhood cancers. However, the NCI spends 96% of its budget on adult cancers and only 4% of its budget on children’s cancers.
  • Each year 160,000 children, around the world are diagnosed with cancer.

Where’s the money go?

Funds raised by the StrongHope Foundation are used to support the Team Ambassador Program, provide individual donations to the institutions and thier research centers that are caring for the children who are Team Ambassadors, individual grants that are given to researchers and clinical trials that are in need of support.

With your support we not only help draw closer each day to finding a cure but we provide HOPE to those who continue to battle cancer. HOPE is what inspires us to push forward. The Team Strong Hope Campaign will help provide HOPE in more ways than any of us can imagine!

In order to represent Pediatric Cancer Awareness each Team StrongHope Team member will wear something neon yellow such as a tee shirt, socks, sweatbands, helmet sticker, swim cap etc. Contact us to find out how to order your TEAM’s NEON accessories.
