Our mission is to find safer, smarter and more effective treatments for children with cancer.

Welcome to Kate Amato Foundation

Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children. For those who survive, the side effects of treatment can cause severe long-term health problems. To honor Kate’s life, and continue the fight for other children, Kate Amato Foundation is dedicated to finding safer, smarter and more effective treatments for children with cancer. Our vision is to fund innovative pediatric cancer research that accelerates the pace of progress and saves young lives.
