Children’s Cancer Fund (CCF) champions kids in their fight against cancer through strategic investments in research and care in North Texas. 

They are closely affiliated with Children's Medical Center and UT Southwestern Medical Center — by working closely with these respected organizations, Children's Cancer Fund is able to strategically focus their funds on improving treatment and care methods for North Texas children who are affected by all types of pediatric cancer. In addition, they are able to help improve the quality of their lives by bringing families who are going through treatments together through various fun and social events they sponsor throughout the year. 

There are various ways to become involved with the Children's Cancer Fund, from volunteering to joining the CCF volunteer committee or CCF board of directors and advisory board.

The Children’s Cancer Fund Gala is the organization's signature event, an annual fundraiser for pediatric oncology research. The event features a dinner, auction, and program along with musical entertainment and dancing. A fashion show presented by Dillard’s and produced by RSC Show Productions features children who are undergoing treatment for cancer at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas as models. They are escorted down the runway by sponsors and celebrity guests.
