Our History

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.


Our Impact 

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.

Children Need Your Support

Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease and kills more children in the United States than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis,diabetes, and muscular dystrophy combined. Additionally, traditional chemotherapy is so toxic that more than half of the children who survive will have long-term side effects, some of which are fatal. With sufficient funding, we CAN cure childhood cancer in our lifetime.  #ForTheKids

Josh, shown to the right, is a leukemia survivor and a ambassador for Curing Kids Cancer.  Seeing him thrive in his life today is the reason why we fund childhood cancer research. Curing Kids Cancer wants more children to have the same story that Josh has-remission. Click here to learn more about the research we fund.
