Despite that, Childhood Cancer Research is Underfunded

By comparison, 12 or more adult cancer drugs on average are FDA approved annually.

#1

​Childhood cancer is the #1 disease killer of children and teenagers, more than any other disease.

46

​Every school day 46 children will be diagnosed with cancer.

49

​Each week, 49 children die from cancer and nearly 40,000 children are in treatment.

Cancer is Killing Our Kids

Before cancer invaded our lives, we didn’t know how pervasive childhood cancer is.

Now we know. And we feel obligated to share what we have learned…

The Result

73% of surviving children have chronic, long-term health issues ranging from infertility to developmental problems to major organ damage to higher risk for secondary cancers, while 42% have life-threatening side effects.
