The Pablove Foundation is a US pediatric cancer nonprofit organization founded by Jo Ann Thrailkill and Jeff Castelaz.[1] The organization is named for Thrailkill and Castelaz's son, Pablo Thrailkill Castelaz, who, in 2009, at just six years old, lost his yearlong battle with bilateral Wilms Tumor, a rare form of childhood cancer.[2][3]

The mission of The Pablove Foundation is to invest in underfunded, cutting-edge pediatric cancer research and improve the lives of children who have cancer through the arts.[4]

Since 2010, The Pablove Foundation has awarded more than $2,200,000 in Childhood Cancer Research Grants to over twenty institutions worldwide.
