Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children in the US. Brain cancer is the deadliest form of pediatric cancer.
13 children are diagnosed with a brain tumor everyday.
46 children are diagnosed with any type of cancer everyday.
Only 4% of federal government cancer research funding is allocated to pediatric cancer, with even less to brain tumors.
Every 3 minutes, somewhere in the world a family hears their child has been diagnosed with cancer.
There are 28,000 children living with a brain or central nervous system tumor in the US right now.
One in four families lose more than 40% of their annual household income as a result of childhood cancer treatment-related work disruption, while one in three families face other work disruptions such as having to quit work or change jobs.
