​​CHILDREN'S CANCER FACTS
​Children's cancer is the number 1 cause of death by disease for children  under the age of 15 in the US.

An estimated 250,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed in children under the age of 20 every year worldwide.

Two-Thirds of childhood cancer survivors will have long lasting cronic conditions from their treatment.

The causes of most childhood cancers are not strongly linked to environmental or lifestyle factors.

One in 285 children in the US will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old.

The National Cancer Institute devotes only 4% of its budget to childhood cancer research.

Childhood Cancer Research is vastly underfunded.
