Children's Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) is dedicated to providing national support for clinical research in pediatric cancer, while improving the medical environment for all children.
It all started with the smile of a four and a half year-old boy who finally let go of his mother's arm to enjoy an arts and crafts program at the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House. Or maybe it was the eventual giggles of a two year-old girl so frightened by her pending radiation treatment that she would not get into position for the procedure. Or maybe it was simply the heart and soul of someone who wanted to do something special for children with cancer. Having seen the courage, strength and need of children with cancer, Matti Contopulos, who had worked with cancer patients for over a decade, found a new way to bring fresh hopes and more than a few smiles to children with cancer and their families. In 1987, Matti founded Children's Cancer Research Fund (CCRF), a non-profit organization dedicated to two important goals: 1. Providing support on a national level for clinical research in pediatric cancer 2. Improving the medical environment for all children The vision and passion of one woman turned into the brightest hope for children with cancer. Children's Cancer Research Fund is a national organization and is not affiliated with CCRF Minnesota.
