Mission

To provide access to specialized, Board Certified Hematology Oncology doctors and medical staff who can treat catastrophic childhood diseases and conditions in Las Vegas and Reno; and to provide treatment and medical checkups for those children and adults affected by inherited bleeding disorders. We provide those services to those with medical insurance and those without, and without regard for the family's ability to pay. No child is every turned away from getting coverage based on lack of medical insurance.

Services

Cure 4 The Kids Foundation oversees two programs: 1) The Children's Specialty Center of Nevada and 2) The Hemophilia Treatment Center of Nevada.

The Children's Specialty Center of Nevada provides treatment for catastrophic conditions including cancer, tumors, sickle cell, rheumatological conditions such as pediatric rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and scleroderma, genetic conditions and rare and ultra rare diseases. It also provides access to clinical trials overseen by the Children's Oncology Group and network of the country's finest pediatric cancer doctors and treatment centers. The Hemophilia Treatment Center(HTC) is the only Federally recognized HTC in the state. It provides comprehensive clinics to help those affected by inherited bleeding disorders live healthy lives. The HTC also travels around the state to provide access to the latest treatment for those with inherited bleeding disorders who would otherwise have to travel hundreds of miles to access medical personnel with the latest treatment knowledge.
