The Children’s Cancer & Blood Foundation (CCBF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and/or supporting research, medical training of physicians, and care of children with leukemia, thalassemia, hemophilia, anemia, cancer, immune disorders, and AIDS. Established in 1952, the CCBF has the largest hemophilia center in the New York area and the largest thalassemia center in North America, receiving more than 5,000 patients visits every year. All affected children are served, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.
