No one fights childhood cancer alone. When a family receives the devastating news that their child has cancer or a blood disorder, the MACC Fund Center at Children’s Wisconsin is here to provide compassionate, comprehensive and cutting edge care. As one of the nation’s top pediatric cancer centers, we treat more than 3,000 children each year. Our teams are comprised of national and international experts paving the way for new treatments and cures for cancer and blood disorders. Through groundbreaking research, teams of specialists take questions from the bedside into the laboratory, and return with better treatments and approaches to care. Patients and families have access to the best national clinical trials, which means kids receive cutting-edge therapies close to home. In fact, 75 percent of our patients are enrolled in more than 140 open clinical trials. We also provide supportive psychosocial care services that help kids with cancer cope with treatment-related side effects, process anxiety and stress, find hope and have fun.

This care is made possible by our philanthropic partners
We have an incredible team of care providers and researchers, but what we do in the MACC Fund Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders isn’t possible without the support of our valued philanthropic partners. Our most committed allies — the MACC Fund, Northwestern Mutual, Gold In September (G9) and a host of grateful patient family foundations along with others — empower us to help kids and families live the fullest lives possible during and after treatment. We offer the most cutting edge immunotherapy treatment trials to our patients and can recruit the best researchers to our program because of our longstanding partnerships. We give hope to patients with brain tumors because of G9’s investment in our glioma program. And our kids can be kids — playing, processing their illness, and having fun with Northwestern Mutual sponsored child life and recreational therapists. With these partners at our side we can achieve our biggest, boldest goal: To one day eradicate childhood cancers altogether.

“At Children’s we give our heart to our patients every day. And our philanthropic partners help us to make that happen. There is no greater gift.” – Lauren Giuliani, Executive Director, MACC Fund Center

An environment and staff that provides not only top-notch medical care but also social, emotional, and recreational support is critical to successful and long term quality of life outcomes.” – Audra Brennan, Director, Strategic Philanthropy

G9 logoGold In September (G9) is a childhood cancer non-profit dedicated to growing awareness, inspiring action and raising research funds to help every child, everywhere, until cures for cancer are found.

Growing awareness and research support is an urgent need to help kids today; our collective efforts in September remind families that the light of hope shines bright and we will beat childhood cancer.” - Sarah Bartosz, President

We are deeply grateful to these organizations for their gifts of care, collaboration, commitment, and to the countless benefactors who join in support of our mission to help children and families affected by childhood cancer and blood disorders.
