The Mustard Challenge raises awareness and funds to discover safer, non-toxic and more effective treatments for children with cancer - the leading cause of death by disease of children in the U.S.
By taking the challenge and donating, you raise awareness of the ancient drugs used to treat our kids and fund groundbreaking research for childhood cancer.
Today, children are commonly treated with 1950s drugs derived from the same compounds used in mustard gas, and only 4 drugs have been approved for childhood cancer since 1980. These ancient drugs are highly toxic and cause acute side effects - even death - as children become adults.
100% of your donation funds research. All of the money raised from the Mustard Challenge will fund groundbreaking research that leverages the latest understanding in cancer biology to bring safer, less toxic, and more effective treatments for children with cancer.
*Anyone over 13 years old can take the Mustard Challenge. If you are sensitive to mustard, you can take the challenge with something else equally challenging. Have fun!
