The Foundation

Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley's...

Mission Statement:

We provide family-centered programs and services through all stages of the pediatric cancer journey with compassion and integrity. 

Vision Statement:

No pediatric cancer family walks this journey alone. 

The Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley is a local 501c(3) non-profit foundation dedicated to helping children and families affected by pediatric cancer by providing free and unique programming and support during treatment, survivorship, and bereavement. We are focused on creating a loving and supportive cancer community for families whose lives have been forever changed by hearing the words, "Your child has cancer." We host events and activities to create free-of-charge opportunities for families to have fun and to find nurturing support within the pediatric cancer community. We have regular, ongoing programming like our Kids Konnect program and monthly Moms’ /Dads'/Parents' Nights Out, as well as much-loved annual events like Camp Smile. PCFLV makes monthly visits to the inpatient pediatric floor and the outpatient pediatric oncology clinic at Lehigh Valley Reilly Children's Hospital through our Chemo Circus and Caregiver Coffee programs, armed with an array of arts and crafts, gifts, entertainment, and food to distract children during their treatment and to create happiness and smiles. We have a bill-paying fund for families treated at LVRCH. And we are also always available to make specially-requested and personalized visits to children during inpatient stays, as well as home visits. We provide individual and specialized assistance based on the needs of our families as well, often in the form of grocery and gas gift cards to help defray the often-unrecognized costs of dealing with a pediatric cancer diagnosis. We provide housecleaning services for newly diagnosed families, a college scholarship fund for high school graduates, and much more! Our fundraising events support this mission.
