Gold4Kids Cancer Foundation of Tulsa is a 501c3 organization serving northeast Oklahoma, dedicated to helping children fighting cancer and their families by raising funds for projects both locally and beyond. This dedicated group of pediatric oncology families, friends, medical staff, and members of the community have been raising funds and raising awareness for the past decade. We officially became Gold4Kids in 2015. As a group, we have raised over a million dollars for the cause of pediatric cancer.
Our local projects have focused on palliative care, symptom management, and psychological education, including school reintegration, for all pediatric oncology patients who are treated at our local clinic. The results of the local studies are helping kids not just here in Tulsa, but all over the United States. We have been fortunate enough to expand to provide a scholarship for pediatric cancer survivors and fighters. In addition, we are funding retreats, Christmas party, and other events to through a local organization called Families Fighting Childhood Cancer. All the while, we have maintained our dedication to funding clinical trials through the Children's Oncology Group.
We have seen the devastating effects of childhood cancer and its treatment, and we want better treatments for the future. More than that, we look forward to the day when there is a cure for every child. We have also seen the joy and the hope in pediatric cancer patients’ eyes, and we know that that day will come.
