Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in American children, resulting in the death of approximately 1,800 kids each year.

 

Every day, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer.

12% of children diagnosed with cancer do not survive.

Children’s cancer affects all ethnic, gender and socio-economic groups.

The average age of children diagnosed is six.

More than 40,000 children undergo treatment for cancer each year.

60% of children who survive cancer suffer late-effects, such as infertility, heart failure and secondary cancers.

There are approximately 375,000 adult survivors of children’s cancer in the United States. That equates to 1 in 530 adults ages 20-39

"And we know that for those who love God all things

 

work together for good, for those who are called

 

according to his purpose." - Romans 8:28
