About Us

My Child’s Cancer (MCC) is an international nonprofit active in the US and Israel and established in 2010 to provide critical support services to primarily Jewish and Israeli families fighting childhood cancer.

The organization was founded by Oded Grinstein following his daughter’s diagnosis with a rare sarcoma and the long, difficult journey to save her life.

Although cancer in children is rare, sadly it is still a leading cause of death by disease among children in Israel and United States. In Israel alone, over 500 children a year are diagnosed with cancer with 1400 more undergoing treatment. In the US, over 15,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year.

When children are diagnosed with cancer, there is a lot their parents can do, however very little information and clear guidance is readily available. Parents face both logistical challenges and immense gaps in knowledge at a time of great distress.

MCC volunteers and staff include medical researchers and cancer experts with a deep understanding of pediatric cancers and access to information on treatments, procedures, clinical trials, new drugs, and specialists. 

MCC provides personalized, situational research into treatment options and other critical support services like relocation and translation assistance to families battling this terrible disease. Our work empowers families to be proactive about the treatment course for their child's cancer and this significantly improves their child’s chance of survival.
