Childhood Cancer is made up of more than 12 types and 100 sub-types and is the leading cause of death in children under the age of 19 in the U.S.
One in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old.
Only 4% of the annual budget from the National Cancer Institute goes to childhood cancer research.
More than 95% of childhood cancer survivors will have a significant health-related issue by the time they are 45 years of age.
The latest drug developed for childhood cancer in the US was 30 years ago.
Limited progress in pediatric oncology drug development remains a major concern.
We need everyone involved in the fight against childhood cancer. All of these children deserve a chance to live. Help fund cutting edge research that WILL make a difference. Cancer doesn’t take a break and neither can we.
