Where does the money go?
We are pleased to have contributed $30,000.00 to the Children’s Oncology Group as well as $118,000.00 to the Saint Francis Children’s Hospital Foundation to benefit our local pediatric oncology clinic.
The local projects, headed by pediatric oncologist Dr. Ascraf Mohamed, focus on palliative care, symptom management, and psychological education. The results of the study will be shared nationally, and benefit children with cancer everywhere. More than just collecting data, the project focuses on action, which includes developing programs to aid children and their families with the symptoms associated with pediatric cancer treatment.
This year is shaping up to be even bigger!
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 childhood cancer research, including supporting the work of the Children’s Oncology Group and projects at the local pediatric oncology clinic. Each year, we choose projects to fund that capture our mission to the fullest.
