Childhood Cancer Statistics

  • 46 kids are diagnosed with cancer everyday

  • 7 kids die everyday from cancer

  • An estimated 300,000 children will die from cancer this year

  • Only 4 drugs have been approved since 1980 for childhood cancer

  • Only 4% of funding has been dedicated to childhood cancer1

According to the American Cancer Society, "because of major treatment advances in recent decades, 84% of children with cancer now survive 5 years or more. Overall, this is a huge increase since the mid-1970s, when the 5-year survival rate was about 58%."2 Thankfully, I was one of the 58% that survived. Fast forward 45 years, and I've written one children's book to help kids with cancer and another book written exclusively for parents with children who have cancer.
