The public needs to be aware that childhood cancer occurs in 1 of every 285 children by the age of 20, and that childhood cancer has not been cured. Each year, an estimated 250,000 new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide. We must join together to raise social awareness and public outcry to demand more funding by the federal government to support additional childhood cancer research.
