The Challenge

At Princess Nora's Warrior Foundation, we became motivated not only by Nora's story, but by all the children that still need help. There are multiple children living in the same area where Nora lived with the same illness. We currently have no cure and will fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. We will  never let a warrior fight alone, or stop chasing progress. 
The biggest challenges that motivated us to start Princess Nora's Warrior Foundation go beyond a lack of knowing how to help. The lack of funding, resources, and awareness surrounding pediatric cancer needs to be addressed.

Pediatric Cancer Today

The reality of pediatric cancer is that many cancers do not have a specific treatment protocol. Many children will receive standardized care that may or may not work for their specific illness.
The treatment regimens available can be very expensive with a child in and out of treatment frequently. As a result, it's too often that family members can lose their source of income when they cannot work in order to care for their sick child. Still today, there is not enough research or progress on treatment options for pediatric cancer.

Funding

The government only reserves 4% of cancer research money to over 120 different types of childhood cancers.

-National Pediatric Cancer Foundation

A Leading Cause

Cancer is the #1 leading cause of death by disease in children ages 1 to 14 in the United States. 

-National Pediatric Cancer Foundation

Ethnicity and Pediatric Cancer

"Racial disparities persist among children with brain tumors. By race and ethnicity, five-year survival is lowest in pediatric patients who were non-Hispanic Black (70%) and highest in those who were non-Hispanic White (79%), in contrast to patterns in adults"

-Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States

Chronic Illness

Pediatric brain tumor survivors will experience an average of 24 chronic health problems by the age of 50. In comparison, the general public will experience 9.2 chronic health problems while overall childhood cancer survivors will experience 17.2.

-The Cumulative Burden of Surviving Childhood Cancer; an initial report from the St. Jude Lifetime Cohort Study, 2017

Outdated Treatment

When you learn that family member has childhood cancer, you learn:

  • The only treatment options are adult therapies from the 1960's, all with debilitating side effects.
  • If your loved one survives, they have a 95% chance of having an impairment.

-National Pediatric Cancer Foundation

When a Child Survives

When a child survives and chemo treats their cancer, there are long term effects. Common side effects are:

Fertility issues
Learning & memory problems
Hearing Loss
Heart Problems
Lung Cancer
Secondary Cancer

Advocating for Change

Advocating means reaching far and wide beyond raising awareness. In our communities, we aim to educate others by hosting events and fundraisers.
We help make progress by supporting future nurses. We contribute a scholarship program for nursing students attending National Park College every year.

*Eligible students are notified through the National Park College course administration*

In addition to giving funding to research, a portion of our donations go to local families in need.
