Cancer Kids First

Who We Are

Cancer Kids First (CKF) is the largest youth-led international nonprofit helping pediatric cancer patients experience a better childhood. We supply patients with toy and book donations, cards, care packages, interactive events and more. We are also working towards helping patients internationally access treatment and care. CKF strives to normalize the hospital environment, inspire patients to keep fighting, and spark some joy within their lives through our many programs.

Join us in Putting Kids With Cancer First.



Volunteers who are dedicated to the Cancer Kids First mission



Chapters throughout the US and within regions as far as Guam, Canada, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic

Countries globally in 6 of the 7 continents have members that are a part of CKF!



Donating is one of the biggest ways you can help our cause. Your donation is distributed between the following categories: buying toys and hospital items, delivering care packages worldwide, and extra expenses. If you would like your donation to go towards a specific category, make sure to let us know!
