Making a Difference

Finding a Cure for Childhood Cancer | Watch this Life Changing Video and Help Make a Difference!

Michael Cuccione imagined a world without childhood cancer.  He had the courage and vision to lay the groundwork and raise awareness believing that research holds the key to finding a cure.

Michael raised enough funds to establish two lifetime endowments for young researchers giving the brilliant minds of today the opportunity to train and become the childhood cancer research leaders of tomorrow.  From his vision of hope he founded the Michael Cuccione Foundation with a mission of funding childhood cancer research.

Researchers in The Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Program at BC Children's Hospital continue to honour Michael’s legacy by treading ever closer to developing treatments that will not only address the ongoing needs of children to experience lifelong healing, but to ultimately achieve Michael’s dream of finding a cure for cancer.

Michael believed that a cure for cancer could be found in a child and that "One can only do so much, but together we can make a difference!”
Please help us keep Michael’s dream alive and support the Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Program. Let's do it for the children!
