Raising awareness is vital to getting research funds and legislative efficacy. Together, we can amplify our impact.
As a member of the Coalition Against Childhood Cancer (CAC2) we want to highlight the following:
Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease among children and adolescents in the United States.
Most causes of childhood cancer are unknown and not preventable.
The incidence of childhood cancer is on the increase.
Most survivors will experience significant debilitating complications that result from their treatment regimes.
Children and young adolescents who have or have had cancer are much more likely (more than 60%) to face bullying than their healthy classmates.
Only four drugs have been developed and approved to treat pediatric cancer in the last quarter century.
