No More Kids with Cancer's annual event in Philadelphia will be held on October 13th, 2018. This year, it will be held at a new location - at the Urban Outfitters headquarters in Philadelphia’s historic Navy Yard.

The Purple Ball celebrates survivors of childhood cancer, honors those who are trailblazers making change in childhood cancer and raises money and awareness for groundbreaking childhood cancer research. Over the last two years, this event has raised over $480,000 for childhood cancer research, and we will continue to direct 100% of those funds towards childhood cancer research.

No More Kids with Cancer Trailblazer Award 

The Trailblazer award recognizes an individual or organization who is accelerating childhood cancer awareness, research, treatments or cures. 

We were honored to recognize Dr. Anna Meadows at our 2017 event. Dr. Meadows is a pediatric oncologist who led the way for survivorship studies of children with cancer during her 40 year career at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). In 1974, she published a paper, Late effects of cancer treatment: methods and techniques for detection, the first to recognize treating children with cancer could cure them, but could also have long-term health consequences. Read a recent interview with Dr. Meadows here.
