About Our Organization
The idea of the Los Cabos Children’s Foundation was born in 2002, thanks to Tom Walsh’s genuine desire to help children with cancer who lived in Los Cabos and had no options in the state of Baja California Sur where they could receive treatment. He never imagined then that his initiative, generosity and commitment to help these children, would benefit thousands more in the 15 years that have passed.
After more than 60 children were treated in medical programs outside our state borders, our story evolved. In 2012, we were finally able to give the children from Los Cabos and all of Baja California Sur the opportunity to be treated locally. We currently support the pediatric oncology, cardiology and intensive care programs at Salvatierra General Hospital in La Paz, in a successful model of cooperation between the government and the community represented by non-profits. Also, since 2006, we continue to be a source of support for local organizations that do their part in children’s health.
Words of Appreciation
The Los Cabos Children’s Foundation has made such a difference in the lives of the children of Baja Sur. Without their help, many children would not have survived the devastation of cancer and heart disease.
I am so grateful to have been a part of this organization from the beginning. I applaud what they have accomplished over these few years, and am in awe of the work that they do for these special children.
We all know that children are our future, and these unselfish and kind hearted volunteers are making these childrens futures become a reality.

We met a couple of little patients while we were there and even though they just completed a chemotherapy treatment, it was amazing how happy and energetic they were. Some of the children enjoy staying here so much that they don’t want to return home.It was a most enjoyable and uplifting day!!

¡Wow! no tengo palabras para decir lo que aprendí personalmente fue una experiencia maravillosa, aprendí a valorar más la vida, a ver más de lo que uno puede ver y aprendí a que no nos cuesta nada ayudar a los niños de B.C.S. Muchas gracias!!!!!!!!

El impacto que tiene la aportación de los ciudadanos a estas causas y que es necesario que nos involucremos todos, hay necesidades que el gobierno no puede cubrir y para esto es necesario que la comunidad se integre y participe.

Que hoy en día hay un equipo de profesionales comprometidos con la salud de todos los niños enfermos de cáncer y problemas del corazón y no tengan el sustento económico para poder atenderlos, se me quedo muy grabado lo que dijo el Dr. “ahora un niño no se muere por falta de atención”. Son realmente un excelente equipo y seres humanos.
