Working Together to Change the Story of Pediatric Cancer

The facts are alarming, but working together, we can rewrite these children's stories

  • Less than 5 percent of the National Cancer Institute's budget goes to pediatric cancer research.
  • Less than 5 cents for every dollar raised by the American Cancer Society is directed to cancers affecting children and adolescents.
  • Pharmaceutical companies fund 60 percent of adult cancer drug discovery and 0 percent of pediatric cancer drug development.

Despite limited support, Kimmel Cancer Center pediatric oncology researchers and clinicians have led the way in bone marrow transplantation, leukemia research and therapies, sarcoma research, immunotherapy and more. Imagine what they could do with adequate funding. Help us close the book on pediatric cancer.

Just Suppose....You Could Give Hope to a Child with Cancer

Help win the fight against childhood cancers. Every dollar makes a difference toward a future free of cancer. Although pediatric cancers are rare, they claim the lives of more children than any other disease.
