Every three minutes, a child somewhere in the world is diagnosed with cancer. This problem is startling in the U.S., with more children lost to cancer each year than any other disease. Today’s cancer treatments are not tailored to fit the needs of children, and using adult treatments on kids can lead to damaging, longterm health effects.
