THE POETIC FOUNDATION & WATER WORLD SWIM

Dedicated to fighting Childhood Cancer

Water World Swim is teaming up with the Pediatric Oncology Experimental Therapeutic Investigators’ Consortium (POETIC) led by Stanford University, to raise funds to cure childhood cancer. Private funding for pediatric cancer research is essential as only about 4% of government research funds are allocated to childhood cancers.

For twenty years, POETIC has worked to promote and accelerate the early clinical development of promising cancer treatment therapies to achieve long and healthy lives for children and adolescents with cancer. The POETIC Consortium includes thirteen academic medical centers that specialize in pediatric cancer care and research. Each year, POETIC consortium members treat 2,000 newly diagnosed patients.

Join Water World Swim and POETIC in the fight against childhood cancer! Learn more and make a donation today.
