Kids Cancel Cancer Event For Waxman Foundation

Kids Cancel Cancer is the latest fundraising event to benefit the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF), an international organization committed to funding world-class cancer research around the world. Unlike, other fundraising events, this event was created and is being organized by adolescents to specifically raise money for pediatric cancer research. The Foundation anticipates raising $100,000 and naming a pediatric research grant in honor of the co-chairs and committee. This amount will help support the work of two investigators for up to two years.

In addition to raising vital funds for groundbreaking research, Kids Cancel Cancer will be an entertaining day of arcades, miniature golf, great food, raffle prizes, and more. Parents are more than welcome to attend too.

This inaugural event will take place on August 17th, 2022 at the Clubhouse in East Hampton from 5:00pm – 9:00pm. Tickets are $100 for kids, $125 for parents (adults). For more information, or to buy tickets, donate - visit

 Hayley Silvers

“I want my friends to know that research can lead to a cure, and we can end this awful illness.”

 About Pediatric Cancer:

While pediatric cancer deaths have declined by 65 percent over the past few decades, cancer remains a leading cause of death for children and teenagers. In fact, it is estimated that 10,500 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed among children (birth to 14 years old) each year, and about 1,190 children will die from the disease. Additionally, a recent study published in Aging AND Cancer found that childhood cancer survivors experience serious health issues in adult life, much earlier than their counterparts who did not have cancer as a kid.

“It is also important to understand that while amazing advancements in treating cancer are saving lives, most treatments can have lasting negative impacts on the human body. This is why we must prioritize research that develops new therapeutics that are both effective, and also less toxic,” said Dr. Samuel Waxman, SWCRF CEO and Founder.
