About Cure 4 The Kids Foundation
Founded in Las Vegas in 2007, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation has treated more than 50,000 children with life-threatening conditions including cancer, blood disorders, rheumatological conditions, genetic conditions and rare diseases.
The Foundation set out to create a new kind of healthcare facility; one that blended the best of what corporate healthcare, education and research has to offer with the generosity, thoughtfulness, and spirit of charity. This hybrid model allows the ability to function like a traditional professional healthcare entity in terms of clinical outcomes yet allows the Foundation to be deeply human in interactions with patients and their families. The focus is on being a nationally recognized center of excellence with a regional focus that equips kids and their families to fight diseases, where no kid gets turned away due to a lack of medical insurance or ability to pay. The Cure 4 The Kids Foundation's Charity Care Plan ensures all patients receive the treatment that can save their life.
Cure 4 The Kids Foundation is also ranked #2623 of the fastest growing companies in America by Inc. 5000 and is proud to have won Best Cancer Treatment Center and Best Charity Event for the past two years and recognized four times by Best of Las Vegas.
