The Pablove Foundation is committed to finding a solution to a very big problem: kids’ cancer. For a start, people often forget that kids get cancer too. What’s more is that less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget goes to childhood cancer research. This means less funding toward finding cures—and safer, more effective treatments for the 175,000 kids who get diagnosed worldwide every year. We need to do better than this.

Cancer is no fun—especially for kids. Pablove Shutterbugs teaches children living with cancer to develop their creative voice through the art of photography. These confident, extraordinary artists pay it forward by helping to brighten the future for other kids affected by cancer. We have seen firsthand how the power of photography can change the lives of kids in all stages of cancer treatment.

You may purchase their photographs here and 100% of the net proceeds will go directly to our childhood cancer research fund.

Pablove specifically funds childhood cancer seed grants in order to support the brightest minds in pediatric cancer research with innovative ideas leading to new, novel therapies. We involve people of all generations across the United States toward achieving this goal – and empower our Pablove Shutterbugs to do the same- through their creative voices and vision.


Pablove Shutterbugs photography courses are fun and rigorous, and above all, dive deep into each student’s inner vision to bring their artistry to light. Our program has reached children across the country including in-person, or virtual classes in 28 states.

Pablove Shutterbugs students embody the meaning of fighting childhood cancer with love. Purchase a print. Make a difference.


Since 2010, with support from community members like you, Pablove researchers have raised an additional $12.8M in extension funding. This makes Pablove’s net total impact over $16.3 Million in solving pediatric cancers representing institutions from all over the world. Each year, our grant applicants undergo a diligent review process and are awarded under the guidance of our respected Pablove Scientific Advisory Committee.
