Mothers Against Cancer was founded in 1989 to help the fight against cancer, a leading cause of childhood disease. MAC is a nonprofit foundation with 501(c)(3) status from the IRS. Our membership is made up of volunteers from the Kingwood and Lake Houston area. We raise funds for the cancer center at Texas Children’s Hospital and do not have any paid employees. As a result, we do not have any paid staff members and our expenses are kept to a minimum. The goal of Mothers Against Cancer is to raise funds for the research necessary to lead to a cure for all forms of childhood cancer.
