The Children’s Cancer Cause is now accepting applications for its 2021 Survivorship Champion’s Prize. The annual award was established in 2020 to recognize a group, program, or institution making significant advances in programs and services to provide lifelong health maintenance for survivors of pediatric cancers. The award recognizes the importance of the unique challenges associated with the posttreatment services for these survivors, especially as they transition to nononcology adolescent and/or adult health-care services.

The inaugural Champion’s Prize was awarded to Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers Long-Term Survivor Program. Additionally, The Children’s Cancer Cause presented three recognition awards to institutions for the following categories: Program Impact, Collaboration, and Scalability. More information about the 2020 award winners can be found at https://www.childhoodcancersurvivorship.org/champions-prize.

In 2021, Children’s Cancer Cause will be making awards in two categories: the Champion’s Prize Award, consisting of $10,000; and the Recognition Awards for Program Impact, Collaboration, and Scalability, consisting of $5,000 each.

Eligibility requirements include the following criteria:

  • A group or institution based in the United States that advances pediatric cancer survivorship through programs and services that offer a sustainable process for maintaining health
  • Applicant must be part of a 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution or organization

  • The prize recipient should have the ability to participate in a survivorship program hosted by Children’s Cancer Cause during the award year, such as a webinar or Capitol Hill briefing.
