Our Organization

We are Southern Nevada's only Childhood Cancer and Rare Disease Treatment Center!

Founded in 2007, we set out to create a legacy project for our community, not just another business. Our model blends the required structure and rigor of the best clinical practices found in centers of excellence; practices normally reserved for large corporate and/or academic healthcare environments, with the responsibility and generosity of philanthropy.
The primary approach behind our business model is to create a new kind of healthcare facility; one that blended the best of what corporate healthcare, education and research has to offer with the generosity, thoughtfulness, and spirit of charity. This hybrid model allows us to function like a traditional professional healthcare entity in terms of clinical outcomes, yet also allows us to be deeply human in our interactions with patients and their families.  Our focus is being a nationally recognized center of excellence with a regional focus that equips kids and their families to fight diseases, where no kid gets turned away; that is what makes us uniquely Cure 4 The Kids Foundation.

Cure 4 The Kids Foundation is Nevada’s only childhood cancer treatment center and facility for pediatric catastrophic diseases.


Since our inception, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation has made huge strides in pediatric catastrophic diseases and we aren’t slowing down now. Every year, we expand our services to help as many families in our region as possible.

We are growing into a nationally recognized center of excellence with a regional focus. Our maverick mindsets are stirring the corporate world and we will continue to provide the highest quality care to our kids while redefining healthcare. Last year, we created our next strategic plan, Here We Grow Again. This fitting title will carry us through 2025.

Love & Care | A Human Experience Rooted in Empathy
We differentiate ourselves by rethinking the entire experience for patients, families, and team members and doubling down on being more than just a medical provider or employer. We show the world that healthcare can care for everyone involved.

Radical Relationships | Because we can’t do this alone
Curing cancer is too big a challenge for any one organization to do alone. That’s why we set our egos aside and think boldly about who can join us in the fight. We invite all renegades, entrepreneurs, and change-makers to join us in eradicating cancer while creating a world-class healthcare experience.
Disruption | Sharing C4K with the World
Our DNA is set. Our business model is proven. Now it’s time to disrupt how healthcare is provided, received, and funded when children and their families need it the most. Nevada’s children deserve better, and we’re proud to lead the way.

Our Friends

While our providers, nurses, medical and support staff will concentrate on every aspect of the diagnosis and related treatments, we also rely on many community partners to assist patients and their families in non-medical ways. These are many of the organizations that provide these important support services.
