The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF), one of the nation’s largest children’s health charitable organizations, is a nonprofit dedicated to funding research to eliminate childhood cancer. The organization was rated 100/100 and is in the top 1% of all national charities scored by Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities. All donations are put towards supporting research to fast-track less toxic, more targeted treatments by partnering with leading hospitals nationwide. NPCF-funded clinical trials are yielding amazing discoveries that are saving children’s lives. New compounds are currently being tested in these trials and hold great promise for children who have not experienced positive results under the standard treatment protocol. Since 1991, the NPCF has been a shining light for children fighting cancer by donating millions of dollars to research.
Harrod Healthcare has been involved with NPCF since 2002, with various employees serving as board members and chair positions. During the tenure of HHRE’s involvement, donations have grown over tenfold, with annual donations up from $200,000 to $2,600,000. There are currently three HHRE employees on the board of NPCF.
