Live Like Bella® funds innovative childhood cancer research with the hope that childhood cancer will become a treatable and curable disease. We provide assistance to families and children affected by pediatric cancer. We assist with funeral services in the tragic event that a child passes from cancer.
Cancer is the #1 cause of death by disease in children. Every year, an estimated 250,000+ new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 21 worldwide. In the last 25 years only four cancer treatments have been specifically developed and approved for children compared to hundreds for adults. Pediatric cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded receiving less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget. This is WHY your support matters. It is WHY we come together to serve the most vulnerable children. These children are WHY we do what we do. Because one death is too many.
Our goal is to make childhood cancer a treatable and curable disease.
As a leading childhood cancer foundation, we’re focused on a future filled with healthy children. The Live Like Bella® Foundation is committed to supporting cutting edge research that will put an end to the number one disease killer of children. We additionally advocate for the most innovative non-toxic cancer research exclusively for use in pediatrics.
IN TREATMENT SUPPORT
To #LiveLikeBella is to serve others. The Live Like Bella® Foundation honors Bella’s desire to serve other by assisting pediatric cancer families while undergoing treatment. We offer emotional and financial support to children and families who are undergoing treatment. We assist families with medical co-pays, basic needs such as: gas, food and utilities and everything in between.
Live Like Bella® Foundation works with funeral homes across the country to help provide families with assistance for funeral/burial expenses as well as a memorial plaque or urn for their child who has passed away from cancer. Burying a child is a horribly painful burden no parent should ever have to bare.
