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.
