Welcome to the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation (NCCF), a local non-profit organization providing services in Southern Nevada since 1993. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for critically ill children and their families living in our community. When a child is diagnosed with cancer or other life threatening illness…they can look to the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation for support, hope, and courage.
The MISSION of the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation is to provide social, emotional, educational, and psychological support services and programs to families of ALL children diagnosed with life threatening or critical illnesses such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, sickle cell, hemophilia, renal disorders, and immunologic diseases and provide healing arts and wellness programs to adults touched by cancer and to chronically ill children and their caregivers.
NCCF supports those who fight a daily battle against disease, therefore, NCCF added healing arts and wellness services for critically ill children and their caregivers as well as hosting a second location (and new program) servicing adults touched by cancer. We NOW offer over 40 programs and services at no cost to our participants at two locations in Southern Nevada.
Within 24 hours of receiving a pediatric referral, the NCCF service professionals work in tandem to identify the financial, educational, and psychological needs for each family. These referrals originate from local and out of state hospital personnel, out-patient medical and oncology clinics, social workers, child-life specialists and family and friends of a diagnosed child.
