Sanford Children’s Hospital partners with Cure Kids Cancer

Sanford Children’s Hospital is proud to introduce its new partnership with Cure Kids Cancer. The mission of Cure Kids Cancer is to help children’s cancer centers, like the one at Sanford, find life-saving treatments and eventually cures for children’s cancer by raising funds and awareness.

Sanford Children’s Hospital is one of more than 80 children’s hospitals across the United States and is the only member from South Dakota. All proceeds raised through Cure Kids Cancer will go directly to programs and services for Sanford Children’s pediatric cancer patients and families. In addition, money will be used for education and research. Camp Bring It On, a camp for children with cancer, will also benefit.

“Sanford Children’s Hospital is pleased to join in this effort. Unfortunately, cancer is a leading cause of death in children under age 15, second only to accidents,” said Charles O’Brien, MD, President of Sanford Children’s Hospital. “We take the fight against cancer very seriously. The quality of care we provide allows children to stay close to home during treatment.”
