Did you know?

Although the large, broad cancer organizations do great things, very little of their resources go to Pediatric Cancer Research. The American Cancer Society provides only 1.85% of dollars spent on research, to be spread over all 12 types of childhood cancers.  (*July 2005, Research Department, American Cancer Society, Inc.) 

We must do better!

*Every 10 hours a child is diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in the USA alone leaving nearly 900 children diagnosed each year.
* In the past 20 years only one new cancer drug has been approved for pediatric use.
* Only 3 percent of the budget from the National Cancer Institute goes towards Pediatric Cancer Research.
* September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness month, which nationally goes largely unrecognized.
* The government recently cut the budget for Childhood Cancer Research.
* 14,000 children will be diagnosed this year with cancer. That is the size of 2 average classrooms every single day, year after year.
* Currently there is between 30-40,000 children being treated for cancer in the US.
* Pharmaceutical companies fund over 50% of adult cancer research, but virtually nothing for kids.
* Pediatric cancer research does not receive nearly as much funding as adult cancer research projects. Neuroblastoma research dollars are scarce as most money is diverted to well-publicized adult forms of cancer.
* Historically, advances in pediatric research have yielded treatment models and genetic information that greatly benefit adult cancer patients. (This is well documented by professional research cooperatives like the Children's Oncology Group); the reverse is not always true.
