THE FACTS...
  • Cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in America. More children will die from cancer than from AIDS, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis and asthma combined.
  • 46 children are diagnosed with cancer every day
  • 1 in 330 children will develop cancer by the age of 20
  • There are 5 children diagnosed with cancer for each 1 diagnosed with pediatric AIDS, yet only $20,000 is invested in cancer research for each $595,000 invested in pediatric AIDS research
