The Samuel Szabo Foundation advocates for children affected by cancer, and provides support and services to the children and families in ways that improve their experience, while they journey through their child's cancer care.

In its short existence, the SSF has been successfully working with northeast Ohio organizations that directly support and assist children and families dealing with childhood cancer.

We collaborate with the Ronald McDonald House® of ClevelandCleveland Clinic’s Child Life departmentKick-It for Cancer and other organizations to improve these people’s lives. 100% of your contributions will go toward these ongoing activities plus begin our mission to improve research, therapies, and ultimately survival rates.

You can donate by sending checks to the P.O. Box or by giving online.
