June is National Cancer Survivor Month

While cancer kills more kids than any other disease, an estimated 500,000 childhood cancer survivors are alive today.

Whether they live weeks, years or decades, their lives are forever changed from the day of diagnosis. By age 50, 96% of survivors have severe or life-threatening conditions, as a result of their treatments.

Research helped find cures for many. Now let’s find cures that give survivors longer and healthier lives.

Forever Changed

When children are treated for cancer, their bodies and minds are still developing. So even while those treatments are saving lives, they often are doing damage that will last a lifetime. Our goal: to help more kids survive, and to give those survivors longer and healthier lives.


A brain tumor survivor, Julia was diagnosed in 2014 and has endured chemo, radiation, and many surgeries. She’s a 14-year-old who has faced so many challenges, yet remains full of joy, love, and compassion for others. She knows that by the time they’re 50, almost every survivor of childhood cancer has a health issue caused by their treatment, and only research can change that.

A bone marrow transplant saved Brooke’s life, but also led to chronic and life-threatening issues affecting her gut, skin, eyes, liver, mouth, kidneys and more.
