AFLAC - Friends of a Feather - Fighting Pediatric Cancer


Friends of a Feather is the umbrella program under which Aflac conducts our Pediatric Cancer philanthropic initiatives: from critical research and medical care, to emotional support for children and their families. We invite other organizations, companies and individual to join us in our fight against all forms of childhood cancer.

Giving back to the community is an everyday part of what we do at Aflac. We've passionately supported the fight against childhood cancer for 15 years. Over our philanthropic history, the extended Aflac family has given more than $65 million to childhood cancer through our relationship with the Aflac Cancer Center and Blood Disorders Service of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. The Aflac Cancer Center and Blood Disorders Service of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is a national leader among childhood cancer, hematology, and blood and marrow transplant programs, serving infants to young adults. Recognized as one of the top childhood cancer centers in the country by U.S. News & World Report, the Aflac Cancer Center treats more than 350 new cancer patients each year and follows more than 2,500 patients with sickle cell disease, hemophilia and other blood disorders. No relationship has been more meaningful to Aflac than the one with the Aflac Cancer Center.
