Pediatric Cancer Statistics

1 in 5 children will not survive

Kids Beating Cancer is determined to changed the odds!

  • Cancer remains the number one disease killer of children; more than genetic anomalies, cystic fibrosis and AIDS combined, second only to accidents.
  • The risk of any single individual developing cancer by age 20 is approximately 1 in 330.
  • 43 children per day or 15,780 children per year are expected to be diagnosed with cancer.
  • Since 1980, fewer than 10 drugs have been developed for use in children with cancer, as compared with the hundreds of drugs that have been created exclusively for adults.
  • Only 4% of the billions of dollars that are annually spent on cancer research and treatments are directed towards treating childhood cancer.
