There is nothing more devastating to a parent than hearing their child has cancer. All other priorities fade away compared to a fierce determination to seek the best medical care and life saving treatments, whereever that may be.

Pediatric Foundation is devoted to Central Oregon children with cancer and their families who must travel long distances to receive necessary surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and bone marrow transplants.

Your contribution directly supports these families with their travel expenses and has an direct impact on their ability to care for their child.

CHILDREN AND FAMILIES MUST travel for life saving treatments

Cancer can strike any family at any time and it's usually unexpected. And, when a child gets cancer, it's especially tragic. Learn how Pediatric Foundation helps families as they cope when treating their child's disease.


We are currently helping families from communities all over Central Oregon, who are traveling monthly to receive treatments for aggressive cancer. Read more about their stories and learn how you can help.

children with cancer



your GIFT makes all the difference FOR A family who must travel 

Powerful fundraising organizations support us including Tour des Chutes, Bend's annual cycling and running event, and Central Oregon Pediatric Associates, Mt Bachelor Rotary, community groups, corporations & individuals. 

Leukemia is a cancer of the bone marrow and blood and it's among the most common of childhood cancers.

But, it's by far not the only childhood cancer. We have both common and rare pediatric cancers diagnosed right here in Central Oregon. However, treatments for all pediatric cancers are only available at hospitals specializing in pediatric oncology. They may include chemotherapy, bone marrow transplants, radiation and surgery. Pediatric Foundation supports these families who must travel out of the region to access life saving treatments for their child.



A community effort


It's a diagnosis no parent ever wants to hear.

Your gift to Pediatric Foundation will be granted to families who have a child in active treatment. The treatment plans vary from outpatient chemotherapy to complicated surgery or a bone marrow transplant. We work directly with parents to assess their needs and provide financial grants to help the family with their immediate travel expenses.
