Our Inspiration

Five-year-old Killian Owen loved sports, especially baseball, basketball and swimming. He enjoyed playing (and competing!) with his brothers. On December 10, 1999, Killian was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Despite the best efforts of those caring for Killian and his own determination the disease took his life on July 27, 2003. He was nine years old.

We work in Killian's memory for children who need a cure. Join us in this fight.

"Our lab is currently conducting 82 therapeutic studies, including 46 studies of drugs in the early phases. Curing Kids Cancer's involvement is crucial, because so little government funding goes to pediatric cancer research."

Dr. Eric Schafer,

Texas Children's Cancer Center

"Funding received from Curing Kids Cancer has allowed us to actively enroll on almost 150 clinical research studies. Without this vital funding these important research studies would not be available to the children."

Ron Frieson,

President, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation

"Our focus is on defining cancer genes and understanding the developmental biology of tumors. To accomplish this, we use zebrafish in research funded by Curing Kids Cancer. If a cancer develops, we can observe cancer growth and test cancer treatments."
