Worldwide, a child is diagnosed with cancer every two minutes. In the U.S., 1 out of 264 children will receive a cancer diagnosis before turning 20. Closer to home, the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer (NNCCF) Foundation supports approximately 120 families with a childhood cancer diagnosis every year – around 50 percent of which are new diagnosis.
For 22 years, NNCCF has provided emotional and financial support to our youngest cancer warriors and their families living in Northern Nevada. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, NNCCF relies exclusively on the generosity of our community through grant funding, individual donors, corporate sponsorships and revenue generated from fundraising events.
