It happens every 2 minutes. All day, every day.
Tragically, 1 of those 5 diagnosed will not survive. We've been working for 20 years to conquer childhood cancers and have had some great successes, but there's more work to be done. Your help is needed to continue funding research into improving survivability and developing better treatments for kids with cancer. Donate today and fund the most promising research to help kids with cancer survive and thrive. Support life-saving research and #DFYchildhoodCancers

Worldwide, over 300,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer every year, that’s 1 every 2 minutes. And approximately 1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer before their 20th birthday. For 80% of kids with cancer, the disease has already spread to other areas of the body by the time it is diagnosed. Some cancers almost never strike after the age of 5; others occur most often in teenagers. Even when kids get cancers that adults get—like lymphoma—they must be treated differently. Children are not simply smaller adults! Support research that will improve the lives of kids with cancer and give them a chance to thrive. Donate today and #DFYchildhoodCancers
By the time they are 50 years old, more than 99% of childhood cancer survivors have a chronic health problem, and 96% have had severe or life-threatening conditions. Another way to look at it: By age 50, childhood cancer survivors have experienced, on average, 17 adverse effects, 3 to 5 of those being life threatening. Imagine having a heart attack in your 20’s, being diagnosed with breast cancer in your 30’s as a result of the radiation you had as a child, or fighting graft-vs-host-disease for years after the bone marrow transplant that rid your body of cancer. These are just a few of the reasons that we say, “a cure is not enough.” Fund the research that will improve treatments and find cures for all childhood cancers. Together let’s improve the lives of kids with cancer and give them a chance to thrive. Donate today and #DFYchildhoodCancers
Around the world, it happens every 2 minutes – over 5,000 times per week – a family receives the devastating news that their child has cancer. Cancer can strike any child, anywhere at any time. Mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, are forced to face their worst nightmare while busy family schedules become singularly focused on treatments and appointments. Marriages are strained, siblings are sidelined and quickly learn to play alone while extended hospital stays are required for their brother or sister. Fund the research that will improve treatments and find cures for all childhood cancers. Donate to St. Baldrick’s and #DFYchildhoodCancers
With 1 in 5 of kids with cancer dying, more children are lost to cancer in the U.S. than any other disease—in fact, more than many other childhood diseases combined. For many years, researchers struggled to give kids just a few more months of life. In the 1950s, almost all kids diagnosed with cancer died. Thanks to research, treatments have improved to the point that many kids with most common types of cancer now survive. But for many other cancers, progress has been limited, and for some kids there is still little hope for a cure.
