About Life Ring Foundation's Fighting Kids Cancer

Help us give children in Southwest Virginia a fighting chance against pediatric cancer and blood disease. Lack of funding, research and treatment options are challenges on a national scale and impact our children locally as well. Life Ring Foundation and Carilion Clinic are committed to bringing the latest programs and highest caliber care to pediatric patients in our region, eliminating the need for families to travel outside the area for treatment. We need your help.

There absolutely needs to be more resources for Roanoke’s children. The Roanoke-based Life Ring Foundation (501(c)3) has teamed up with Carilion Clinic to create the Fighting Kids’ Cancer initiative. The initiative’s goal is to include a world-class pediatric cancer treatment center in Carilion’s new cancer center.

We’ve set a big goal, $20 million, and 100% of funds donated to the Fighting Kids’ Cancer initiative will go towards creating this new pediatric cancer center. With cutting-edge resources in our area, families can feel easy knowing they can stay here with their support systems and receive the best available care and outcomes.
