OUR BEGINNING

Research is the key!

Cannonball Kids’ cancer Foundation was founded in 2014 with the mission to fund innovative, accessible research for children fighting cancer to provide better treatments and quality of life, and educate for change.

Our founders know this reality first-hand. Michael and Melissa Wiggins’ first-born son, Cannon, was diagnosed with Stage IV high-risk neuroblastoma when he was just 20 months old. They were told he had a 50% chance of survival. They watched Cannon suffer through surgeries and “diluted” chemical treatments meant for adults, which caused him loss of hearing and decay to all of his teeth. They watched their son bleed from the inside out and be dragged to death’s doorstep in their quest to save him. They know this tragic reality all too well. They know there has to be a better way. They know that no other child should have to suffer the same as their child.

Out of their unwavering faith and commitment, they founded Cannonball Kids’ cancer. Out of their anger, they became determined to be a part of the solution. Out of their persistence, they know funding research will unlock the cure. Research Is The Key!


Our mission is to fund innovative, accessible research for children fighting cancer to provide better treatments and quality of life, and to educate for change.

Our vision is to create cures for all childhood cancers.


Why Fund Research?

For children diagnosed with cancer, clinical research trials represent a chance. A chance at a cure and a chance to not just survive cancer, but to have thriving futures free from side effects and secondary illnesses brought on by harsh, adult treatments.

Every day a trial is not funded, a child potentially loses that chance.

In the United States, the government spends less than four percent of the annual cancer research budget on pediatric cancers, approximately $185 million. With 50,000 children actively in treatment in the US right now, that 's less than $4,000 spent per child to find a cure. Is that the price you would put on saving a child's life?

The life-saving trials our children need are largely funded by individuals, people like you who donate or get their company to donate to foundations like Cannonball Kids' cancer. By supporting CKc, you are helping contribute to revolutionary research working to save the the lives of children fighting cancer today, childhood cancer survivors, and the generations of tomorrow.
