Our Mission

The mission of the Brantley Francis Foundation is to positively influence pediatric cancer patients and their families. 

 

​How to help

You have already taken the first step in helping- educating yourself! Childhood cancer is not rare.  Here are some facts:

  • One in 285 kids in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old. 

  • Of those diagnosed, 2/3 will have long term side effects. 

  • Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in kids under the age of 19 in the U.S. 

 

Still, despite these facts, the National Cancer Institute gives only 4% of the annual budget to childhood cancer.
