Mission: Dedicated to serving children and their families who are battling pediatric cancer or chronic blood disorders with the emotional, financial and educational support necessary to cope with their life-threatening illness.
Mac and Cecile Burnett, whose daughter, Helen, passed away to leukemia, and Dr. Janifer M. Judisch envisioned an organization that would help alleviate the stress of coping with a child’s life-threatening disease.
The philosophy of our founders was when a child is diagnosed, the entire family is diagnosed. The Children’s Cancer Center has been serving families in the Sarasota area for over 45 years and recently began a satellite location in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. This will allow our families access to more of our regular programs and services.
While other organizations are working to find a cure tomorrow, the Children’s Cancer Center is committed to helping families cope today!
