– Did you also know that just this year in the US, there will be 16,000 children diagnosed with a form of cancer?
– That means 1/285 children are at risk for developing cancer under 20 years old.
– Today, worldwide, there will be 700 new children from yesterday affected by pediatric cancer.
– Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease among the pediatric population, yet only 4% of cancer research funds from the government go towards helping develop new therapies.
