60 years ago, childhood cancer was a death sentence. Today, 8 out of 10 children will survive. But there is much work to be done.
Medical research is how we will cure all children of cancer.
Worldwide, about 400,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed each year in children and adolescents.
Cancer kills three children every week in Australia – more than any other disease.
70% of children who survive cancer suffer long-term side effects from their treatment.
