I will be walking to help conquer childhood cancer on October 3, 2021.  Would you please consider helping me raise $500.  Every little bit helps.


Some Pediatric Cancer Facts:


  • Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease among children in the USA.  It is estimated that 15,590 children will be diagnosed with cancer and 1,800 will die of the disease each year.
  • While the worldwide cancer research and treatment industry is well-funded, there is relatively little investment in pediatric cancer. In the last 30 years, very few new cancer drugs have been developed specifically for children.
  • Childhood cancer receives only 4% of the annual National Cancer Institute research budget.  This must change.
  • Every day, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer.

  • More than 40,000 children in the United States undergo cancer treatment each year.

  • One in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old.

  • 60% of children who survive cancer suffer late effects, such as heart failure, infertility, and secondary cancers.
