Childhood Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 in the U.S. and kills more children than AIDs, asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and congenital anomalies altogether combined.
Every year an estimated 250,000+ new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide and every day, approximately 250 kids die from cancer, and 91,250 kids lose their life to cancer.
Only 4% of federal government cancer research funding goes to study pediatric cancer. The taxpayer-funded National Cancer Institute (NCI) dedicates approximately 4% of its annual budget to childhood cancer.
