Children, families, friends, neighbors, survivors and medical professionals will gather together to raise funds and support children’s cancer research.
Every day, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer. Children’s cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children and 12% of children diagnosed with cancer do not survive. During the last 25 years, the overall survival rate for children’s cancer has increased from 40% to nearly 90%, but for many rare cancers, cure rates remain unchanged. 60% of children who survive cancer suffer late effects, such as infertility, heart failure, and secondary cancers.
