The effective use of the resources provided by the Children's Cancer Research Fund, the University of Minnesota Foundation, the Masonic Cancer Center and the University of Minnesota creates a clear pathway that takes advantage of our key strengths.
The Children's Cancer Research Fund is dedicated to finding a cure for childhood cancer by providing funds to the University of Minnesota for research and training relating to the prevention, treatment and cure of childhood cancer. The organization also educates the public about childhood cancer and supports quality-of-life programs for pediatric cancer patients and their families.
The Children's Cancer Research Fund focuses on supporting pioneering research initiatives that lead to larger studies, clinical tirals and improved methods of treating childhood cancer. Ultimately, it will be the breakthroughs in diagnosis and treatment that help prevent childhood cancer.

Advancing knowledge and enhancing care is the mission of the Masonic Cancer Center at the University of Minnesota. This mission is fostered through scientific research on, clinical treatment of patients with, and public education about cancer.
The University of Minnesota established the Cancer Center in 1991, and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated the University's Cancer Center a "Comprehensive Cancer Center" in 1998 due to its ongoing, significant advances in cancer research, treatment and education.
