Become a Sidekick - Unite In the Fight Against Childhood Cancer
Every day 43 children are diagnosed with cancer-- rallying thousands of friends, families and neighbors together against this terrible disease.
Yet, sadly the research needed to improve outcomes for these kids is still dramatically underfunded. According to the Coalition of Childhood Cancer, it takes an average of $250,000 to create significant change for most research projects. That's a goal most small groups aren't able to hit on their own.
The Sammy's Superheroes Sidekick program was created to help cancer families and supporters collaboratively fund research needed to find the cure for childhood cancer once-and-for-all.

Expectations of a Sidekick
