Company Description

Cure 4 The Kids Foundation was organized in April 2007 solely for charitable, educational, and scientific purposes to address the specialized health care needs of children in Nevada and the surrounding region; more specifically to encourage and support clinical research and the application of that research seeking to control, cure, and prevent all types of childhood diseases.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be the community leader in advancing the treatment and prevention of catastrophic diseases in children.

This vision will be achieved through pursuing the best possible patient outcomes by developing a reliable, efficient, and responsible team that has the capability of meeting the individual needs of "this" patient while continually improving care for the "next" patient.

Our Mission

To advance cures and means of prevention for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment, while providing access to quality medical care for the uninsured, underinsured, and medically indigent children of Nevada with complex medical issues, through the charity care plan, education, research, and advocacy. Consistent with the vision of our founders, that no child be deprived of care based on a family's inability to pay for services.

Population Served

It is not unusual for children with cancer and other complex medical conditions from Nevada and the surrounding region to travel hundreds of miles, seeking appropriate care and access to the latest treatment protocols and clinical trials. However, the most vulnerable of children diagnosed with complex medical issues such as cancer; the uninsured, under insured and medically indigent are often excluded from this opportunity due to their lack of medical coverage and/or the finances required to appropriately treat these childhood conditions. It is not only our policy that no child will be denied care at our clinic for financial reasons; it is our legacy.

Unfortunately, the limited access to care in Nevada has become exceedingly more complicated by the current economic status of our region. Unemployment rates have led to alarming increases in uninsured and medically indigent children; children who are fighting for their lives... children whose lives depend on our ability to continue to provide care in spite of the economic crisis.
