Due to the above, about 15% of families will fall well below the poverty line do to the financial burdens.
What We Do
Smiles Are Forever is dedicated to providing pediatric cancer patients with the support that they need. By harnessing the power of new media, we are able to share the stories of children suffering and give them a platform for sharing and connecting with the compassionate people who have come to their aid, and others who are faced with a similar challenge. A picture tells a thousand words but a video tells a story.
We will hold a variety of charitable events and projects where your contributions will be used to help those who need it most. As a transparent nonprofit, we allow you to see exactly where your donations are going.
At Smiles Are Forever, we aim to educate people about pediatric cancer because we believe that information is power. Knowing and understanding the different types of this disease is important to help diagnose it earlier, treat it, or prevent it from occurring to kids.
