Curing Kids Cancer is a 501(c) nonprofit founded in 2005 by Grainne and Clay Owen after their 9-year-old son Killian (shown on the right) died of leukemia. Before Killian’s death, the Owen family was told that there was a drug in the lab that might have saved Killian’s life if only there had been enough money to fund the research. This terrible news inspired the Owens to create Curing Kids Cancer, an organization that raises money to fund cutting-edge research for childhood cancer treatments. Curing Kids Cancer's mission is to find cures for childhood cancers in our lifetime by funding innovative research and treatments. With your gift, you are giving children the gift of hope.
Curing Kids Cancer has raised more than 8 million dollars to fund research on cutting-edge childhood cancer treatments. Curing Kids Cancer’s largest single grant to date was a 1.5 million dollar endowment to the Aflac Cancer Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The Killian Owen Curing Kids Cancer Clinical Research Office at CHOA now allows doctors to better research the best treatment options for each child.
