Educating For Change

JOIN THE IMPACT on CKc's Educate for Change Team! YOU can educate others on childhood cancer!

Here are the critical facts you can share.

  • • Every year, worldwide, 400,000 children are diagnosed with cancer; double what was previously recognized. This equates to one child every minute.

  • Seven children die from cancer each day in the U.S.

  • • Childhood cancer is the #1 disease-killer of children. Brain cancers such as DIPG have ZERO long-term survivors.

  • • Standard protocol for treating children with cancer is to give them diluted adult chemotherapies. Only FOUR drugs have been developed specifically for treating kids' cancer in the last 40 years.

  • • Adult treatments take their toll on children's bodies. Of the children that survive cancer, 95% will suffer serious long-term health issues due to their treatment. Side effects include: Hearing loss, infertility, organ failure, digestive issues, learning disabilities and secondary cancers.

    Survival rates for kids with cancer are measured using adult benchmarks. Therefore, a child as young as six or seven years old that dies due to the side effects of their treatment, is considered a "cancer survivor."

We can’t do this without you!
