Childhood cancer does not discriminate, sparing no
ethnic group, class or geographic region.
Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease
in children and adolescents in the United States.
Every day 46 children are diagnosed with cancer
and 7 children lose their life to cancer.
Only 2 new drugs for childhood cancer
have been developed in the last 30 years.
The average age of death for a child with cancer is 8,
causing a child to lose 69 years of expected life.
1 in 285 children will be diagnosed
with cancer by the age of 18.
