Our Mission

Arms Wide Open Childhood Cancer Foundation’s mission is to fund less toxic therapies for children with cancer so they can have a better quality of life as they battle the disease and to give families hope by bridging the funding gap and making available potentially life-saving clinical trials that would otherwise not be available.  


Through our Emmy-Award winning documentaries and awareness campaign, The Truth 365, and CureFest for Childhood Cancer, we are committed to educating the general public on the truth about childhood cancer, raising awareness on a global level, uniting the childhood cancer community, and giving children with cancer a platform to share their voice.

Through its many programs, Arms Wide Open also helps families throughout the United States both financially and emotionally who are suffering hardship due to their child’s diagnosis of cancer, providing them with support during the most difficult time of their lives. Arms Wide Open supports families from diagnosis to sadly, sometimes their child’s death, and beyond.  

Through our mental health initiatives and programming for childhood cancer survivors and their families, Arms Wide Open is working to ensure that those affected by childhood cancer not only survive, but thrive.
