Fight Childhood Cancer and Make A Difference!

 

Promote Awareness

The statistics are staggering. Every day in the U.S., 45 families are told their child has cancer, and are instantly devastated. However, less than 4% of the federal government’s total cancer research funding is dedicated to childhood cancers.

Promote Awareness of Children's Cancer

  • Childhood cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded.
  • Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under 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.
  • Every year, an estimated 250,000+ new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide.
  • Two-thirds of childhood cancer patients will have long lasting chronic conditions from the cancer treatment.
  • Childhood cancer is not just one disease. It is made up of 12 major types and over 100 subtypes.

Promote Awareness of Targeted Therapies for CHILDREN

Kids NEED TARGETED THERAPIES NOW to kill the cancer and NOT THE KID. Nearly all drugs currently used to treat children with cancer were developed for adult cancers. But, most types of childhood cancer are distinct from adult cancers at the biological and cellular level, which is the key factor in developing targeted therapies. In other words, resources must be dedicated to pediatric research as never before.

Targeted drugs have proven to be an effective weapon in the war on cancer for adults, and one of the most promising treatments for the future. But such targeted treatments for childhood cancer cannot wait for the approval of drugs developed for adult cancers because those drugs are not applicable on a molecular level. Due to this molecular distinction, pediatric cancer research must be pursued independently and with it’s own focused research effort.

This is why your support is so important:

  • Fund researchers so that we can move closer to innovative and specialized cures.
  • Raise awareness through sharing statistics, facts about childhood cancer, and stories behind those numbers.
  • Help the families better understand what their loved one is going through, what options are available to them, and cope with this dreadful disease on a daily basis.
