Childhood Cancer Awareness
Childhood Cancer is the #1 disease killer of children. More than asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes & pediatric AIDS – COMBINED!
- 46 children and adolescents are diagnosed every single week day
- 1 in every 330 children develop cancer before age 19 – it is NOT rare. 1 in every 5 children diagnosed with cancer dies.
- The federal budget for the National Cancer Institute is $4.6 billion. Of that breast cancer receives 12%, prostate cancer 7%, yet ALL 12 MAJOR GROUPS of pediatric cancers COMBINED receive less than 4% of all funds.
