Pediatric Cancer Facts:
Progress in the development of effective new treatments and cures for childhood cancer has been remarkable over the last three decades. Most children can now be cured-with fewer harmful side effects- if they are treated by pediatric cancer experts. A diagnosis of cancer today is life changing but it is far from hopeless.

· The GOLD RIBBON signifies pediatric cancer!
e· 170 new childhood cancer cases were diagnosed at Children's Hospital in 2005
· 1,000 children currently in treatment at Childrenhs Hospital.
· Children"s Hospital follows more than 10,000 children that have undergone treatment for pediatric cancer.
· The cancers that attack children are unique, frequently presenting at a much more advanced stage than in adults.
p· In one school day, 46 children-enough to fill two classrooms will learn they have cancer
