Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease for children in the U.S. Survival rates can vary depending on the type of cancer. About 420,000 childhood cancer survivors live in the U.S., with many more around the world. Cancer is bad enough. But when it affects a child, it is particularly devastating. Because kids deserve a chance to experience life. To laugh and have fun. To be amazed and to dream. To grow up. Every year, there are over 250,000 new cases of cancer that affect children under the age of 20 worldwide, that's over 700 kids diagnosed with cancer every single day. Despite this, childhood cancer research is severely underfunded. Unfortunately, we can't count on federal funding to help kids with cancer. Not only has there been an alarming decrease in budgets, but less than 4% of the NCI's federal funding goes towards research for all childhood cancers, combined. The Childhood Cancer Project is committed to funding rare child, adolescent, and young adult cancer research and to the development of more effective and less toxic treatments for cancer’s youngest warriors. Please help us "Develop Cures" and "Deliver Hope."
