Our mission is simple...to work relentlessly for the day when cancer is no longer a threat to ANY child.
Why We Fight?
Did you know that in the U.S. cancer is the #1 disease killer of children?
Every day, parents hear the devastating words, "Your child has cancer."
Every day, parents hear the devastating words, “Your child has cancer.”
- 43 children are diagnosed each day with cancer. That’s 1 child every 30 minutes.
- 1 out of 8 children will not survive… that’s approximately 1800 U.S. children each year.
- Nearly 60% of those who survive will have long-lasting chronic health conditions as adults.
- More children die from cancer than AIDS, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, and asthma combined.
The good news? Research in childhood cancer has led and continues to lead to successful treatments for cancer in both children and adults.
