How many lattes will you donate to help us reach this goal?

We help cure children in Africa with cancer

We provide children in Africa with access to cancer treatment and fund organizations that are changing the equation.

Cure children in Africa diagnosed
with cancer.

Children and their families need the resources to support the medical, social, economic, and logistical necessities to successfully complete curative treatment

We have helped hundreds of children receive care and support through programs for accurate diagnosis, dedicated medical care, transportation, housing, treatment education, and access to resources such as a dedicated 24/7 clinical hotline

We raise hope together. We work with partners in Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Kenya and the United States to achieve our mission, which started with Burkitt’s Lymphoma and now supports children with all types of cancer.
