The PaulieStrong Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to raising awareness and funding research to eliminate childhood cancer.
Our focus is to fund research to find less toxic, more targeted therapies for children with cancer. PaulieStrong Foundation is a recognized 501(c)(3) childhood cancer foundation created in 2016 and inspired by a brave 10 year old boy named Paul Ulysses Jimenez and his brave battle with a rare form of cancer known as Rhabdomyosarcoma. After learning first-hand the need for research funding, Paul’s family created the Foundation with three main objectives
- Fund Childhood Cancer Research
- Raise Awareness
- Advocate For Change
According to The National Cancer Institute, Cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the United States. Nearly 16,000 children and adolescents diagnosed each year. And yet, less than 4 percent of all funding at the National Cancer Institute goes to research into childhood cancers. In the last 20 years, only two major drugs have been developed for children. Funds raised through The PaulieStrong Foundation will go directly to the Pediatric Oncology Team at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC to help fund research to find a cure for pediatric cancer.
