Kids Beating Cancer

The Only Nonprofit Foundation of its Kind in America, Kids Beating Cancer is advancing cures through the science of cutting-edge treatment at the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center at Florida Hospital for Children, while providing resources and support for children with cancer, leukemia 
and related life-threatening diseases throughout the treatment process. Kids Beating Cancer pays for the transplant testing and donor identification (costs never covered by Medicaid and only partially covered by insurance) for children at the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center. By removing these financial barriers, any child can have access
 to bone marrow and stem cell transplantation, the best and only hope for a cure. Led by Medical Director, Dr. David Shook, the 
Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center is the only transplant center in Central Florida, and the second busiest center in the state, serving children from all three Central Florida hospitals: Arnold Palmer, Nemours, and Florida Hospital for Children. Year-end projections for the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center is to be the busiest transplant center in the state, offering cutting-edge, new therapies only available at a handful of centers nationwide.
