Every hour, a child is diagnosed with cancer. Every 6.5 hours, another young life is lost to this terrible disease. And you won’t believe the barriers standing in the way. Only 3.8% of federal government cancer research funding goes to children. So too often, kids are treated with drugs created to fight adult cancers, which can lead to chronic and even fatal side-effects. That’s why the Pediatric Cancer Foundation is partnering with top doctors and researchers nationwide to break down barriers to a cure and fast-track less toxic, more targeted therapies. With your help, we can crush pediatric cancer once and for all.
