Supporting National Childhood Cancer Research Program

 Northwestern Mutual launched a national program in 2012 to support research and care for childhood cancer.  To date, Northwestern Mutual has raised more than $10 million and  funded over 105,000 hours of research to help discover life-saving treatments. We are honored to stand with medical professionals, nonprofits and families who are fighting this disease. We have also partnered with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF),a national nonprofit that is one of the leaders in funding childhood cancer research.
