What We Fund
The Olivia Caldwell Foundation believes that our children are our future. It is because of this deeply held belief that we fund research and programs that focus on improving the lives of children who are battling cancer and other serious diseases in Wyoming and throughout the rest of the world. Our funding priorities include pediatric cancer research and improving access to pediatric specialty care in Wyoming for children with chronic or complicated medical conditions.
PEDIATRIC CANCER RESEARCH
Our top funding priority is research aimed at finding the cure for pediatric cancer. We provide funding for start up research projects to begin. This enables our research team to work off of a hunch to pursue new ideas and better treatment options for pediatric cancer.

IMPROVING ACCESS TO PEDIATRIC SPECIALTY CARE IN WYOMING
Wyoming is a unique state as we do not have the population to support a pediatric hospital. This means that children who are diagnosed with a chronic or complicated medical condition are required to travel out of state to receive specialty care. We now fund a Pediatric Specialty Outreach Clinic in Casper, WY that brings specialists from Children's Hospital Colorado to our state to see patients for a variety of specialities.

MORE SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES WITH CHRONICALLY ILL CHILDREN
In partnership with The Orr's Hope Foundation we have expanded our services to include a Patient Advocacy Program designed to make a family's life simpler when their child is battling a complicated medical condition. Our Patient Advocate is available to help Wyoming families for free regardless of income level or type of diagnosis. She can provide support and connections to resources that assist with travel expenses, childcare, school accommodations, medical support and equipment, food assistance, counseling, and anything else a family needs throughout their child's illness. Our philosophy is to provide WHOLE FAMILY CARE because the diagnosis is difficult for everyone in the family!
