Why We Help
​Because children are our greatest treasures and our hope for the future. Every child deserves the opportunity to grow up and make a difference in the world. Sadly, pediatric cancer steals that opportunity away from too many children.

Why Fund Pediatric Cancer Research?

Childhood Cancer Diagnosis Statistics

     Each year in the U.S. over 15,000 children will be diagnosed with cancer

     Equates to approximately 1 in 285 children diagnosed with cancer yearly

     World-wide, each year over 300,000 children are diagnosed with cancer

     1 of 5 children diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. will not survive

Treatment Facts

     For many childhood cancers, the same treatments from the 1970’s continue to be used without change

     Since 1980, fewer than 10 drugs have been developed for use in children compared to hundreds for adults

     Two-thirds of childhood cancer patients will have long lasting chronic conditions from treatment

Research Funding

     Research has increased childhood cancer survival from 20% in the early 1960’s to over 80% today

     Of their annual budget, the National Cancer Institute dedicates less then 4% to childhood cancer research

     Pharmaceutical companies account for approximately 60% of all funding for drug development in adult
     cancers, but for kids – almost none, because childhood cancer drugs are not profitable
