---> Incidence rates for CHILDHOOD cANCER have been increasing for more than 40 years!

-----> 4 out 5 kids diagnosed with CHILDHOOD cANCER die within 5 years or suffer from disabling health problems & early death.

---> Half of all chemotherapies used for children's cancers are 25 years old.

-----> The FDA has approved only one drug for childhood cancer in the past 20 years.

---> CHILDHOOD cANCER receives less than 4% of the total National Cancer Institute's budget; nearly 1/3 of that is directed at Leukemia research leaving barely 2% for all other kids' cancers COMBINED!
