BENEFITING: Richi Childhood Cancer Foundation
DID YOU KNOW?
+300.000 new cases of childhood cancer every year
90.000 kids lose their battle to cancer every year
Nevertheless, childhood cancer is still considered a rare disease and faces three major problems:
Patients and their families suffer social isolation | It affects them from the time of diagnosis and accompanies many of them for the rest of their lives.
Childhood cancer research is NOT advancing | Few funds are allocated to research because it is considered low-incidence.
The lack of expertise limits the prognosis | Not all patients have the same opportunities to access the highest levels of expertise.
