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.
Promote, fund, monitor and strengthen programs that have a focus on health for children in Baja California Sur.
Better quality of life for the children of Baja California Sur, through health.
- RESPECT for life and for all human beings

- LOVE for the children we serve
- HOPE to never give up, despite the obstacles
- GRATITUDE to all who believe in us and join us in helping the children every day
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.
I want to let you know that Padrino Children’s Foundation is already benefiting from our association with LCCF and other organizations to whom you provide support. We’ve visited several organizations — CRIT was an especially wonderful learning experience — and have others we would like to visit. We’ve learned a lot and have already changed some of our processes because of bench-marking best practices. So, in addition to receiving the much appreciated financial support, our association with LCCF is helping us improve and mature as an organization. And for all that, we say a big THANK YOU!
Thank you and may God bless each one of you that are a part of this foundation. Thanks to you my baby has a better quality of life. I don’t know what would have happened if my baby hadn’t received his surgery at just 11 days old.
