RESEARCH SUPPORT

Childhood cancer is the
#1 disease killer of children. More than asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined.

Approximately 13,500 children in the USA are diagnosed with cancer each year.

Everyday in the USA seven children die from cancer.

Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology companies fund over 50% of adult cancer research, but virtually nothing for children.

Only 4% of the National Cancer Institute's 2010 federal budget went to Childhood Cancer Research. That’s only 4% for ALL 12 types of Pediatric Cancers combined.

THERE IS A DESPERATE NEED FOR INNOVATIVE TREATMENTS

Because of the aforementioned facts, the majority of treatments that many children receive are over 20 years old. Current clinical trial protocols do not incentivize innovative, non-toxic treatments.

The Live Like Bella® Foundation addresses these unfortunate facts directly with advocacy and funding specifically for pediatric cancers. The foundation has a unique approach to these policies- We approach researchers studying cancer with “funding in hand” to ensure that children benefit from the most current research available. Our board of directors and scientific advisory board guide the process with great agility and influence with the purpose of discovering a cure.

The Live Like Bella® Foundation makes realtime- PEDIATRIC trials a reality, ensuring that our future- OUR CHILDREN- benefit from innovation NOW.
