Each year in the U.S. there are an estimated 15,780 children between the ages of birth and 19 years of age who are diagnosed with cancer. This means, approximately 1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer before their 20th birthday. For many children, this means many days spent in and out of hospitals, and their childhood being cut short or not fulfilled. Many families, as well, experience hardship both financially and emotionally.
