Beat Childhood Cancer is a group of 40+ research centers and children’s hospitals headquartered at the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital that offer an international network of childhood cancer clinical trials. These trials are based on the research from a group of closely collaborating investigators who are linked with laboratory programs developing novel therapies and technologies.

Our mission is to act as a national collaborative effort of researchers, oncologists and family advocates to bring forward new therapies and technologies with the goal of improving the survival and quality of life of children with childhood cancers.
