IMPORTANT QUESTIONS AT A GLANCE
Why is the foundation called "Juno"?
Derived from the Roman goddess Juno, our name stands for the themes of children and care. And these are the pillars on which Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe (Juno childhood cancer foundation) stands: It focuses on the special care that is needed in the case of a sick child.
When was Stiftung Juno established?
Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe (formerly Stiftung Kinderkrebshilfe Mainz) was established in 2011 and has funded numerous projects while keeping a low public profile. In 2021, Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe took off into a new dimension: From now on, the foundation will network supraregional, national and international projects that have one common goal: To defeat childhood cancer.
Who is behind Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe?
We were founded as part of Kinderkrebshilfe Mainz e.V. Today, our foundation is financed entirely by donations.

5. Activity Report
With the decision to rename Stiftung Kinderkrebshilfe Mainz, the foundation stone for Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe was laid in 2020. With this, it was clear: the foundation is to grow from now on with more public relations work and active fundraising. The organizational milestones, such as the official decision on a (digital) general meeting, the processing of the amendment of the statutes via the ADD or the entry in the foundation register were made. In addition, the corporate design (logo, stationery, etc.) was worked out and the URLs for the website were secured, so that nothing stood in the way of active foundation work from 2021.
For the project “Personalized Immunotherapy in Pediatric Oncology”, a high-performance microscope and an ultra-low temperature freezer for the storage of tumor cells worth € 53,000 were financed in 2020.

“Through Kinderkrebshilfe Mainz e.V., Prof. Dr. Jörg Faber and I have been actively and publicly involved in the fight against childhood cancer since 2009. We have been noticing for some time that, due to the closure of various centers and the concentration on individual locations, the topic of networking is playing an increasingly important role. We see it as a meaningful goal to promote national and international networking and thus work together to defeat childhood cancer. And that is how the idea of Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe came about, which we are now bringing to life with a small and dedicated team.”
