Since its inception in 2009, Arms Wide Open has had a big impact in the fight against childhood cancer. AWOCCF is focused on these main areas: Funding Vital Research, Starting a Movement and Helping Families.
Funding Vital Research
The mission of Arms Wide Open is to fund less toxic therapies for children with cancer so they can have a better quality of life as they battle the disease. To date, AWOCCF has funded over 80 research grants, which has provided children with cancer alternative treatment options in hospitals throughout the US and Canada.
Starting a Movement
Through their documentaries and awareness campaign, The Truth 365, Arms Wide Open is committed to educating the general public on the truth about childhood cancer, raising awareness on a global level, uniting the childhood cancer community, starting a movement and giving children with cancer a voice so that they will see change in their lifetime.
Through its many programs, Arms Wide Open also helps families throughout the United States both financially and emotionally who are suffering hardship due to their child’s diagnosis of cancer, providing them with hope during the most difficult time of their lives.
