Wipe Out Kids' Cancer (WOKC) offers comfort and hope to kids with cancer through support programs serving the entire family and funds innovative research leading to new discoveries and treatments in the fight against pediatric cancer. We strive to achieve this mission through our three major initiatives: our Buddy Bags, Warrior Family Program, and Research.
Buddy Bags - A Buddy Bag is a sturdy rolling suitcase given to pediatric cancer patients admitted for overnight stays in a WOKC partnering hospital. Filled with carefully selected hygienic, comfort, and entertainment items, they are designed to ease the transition from home or pediatrician’s office to the hospital.
Warrior Family Program - Since cancer affects the entire family, this unique WOKC program provides fun and free events throughout the year. All family members enjoy amusement venues, sporting events, holiday parties, and other social engagement activities…medicine for the soul as parents describe.
Research - WOKC has significantly impacted the pediatric cancer space by funding over $7 million for innovative and novel childhood cancer research projects. This seed money has yielded more than $22 million in additional grant money for further critical research study and discoveries.
