Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we’re raising awareness for better, safer treatments for kids fighting cancer. It is a time to celebrate advances in childhood cancer treatment and survivorship care, and to remember the children we’ve lost.
Survivorship has been a core pillar of Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe‘s mission. The chances of cure have improved considerably in recent years as a result of intensive research and now stand at over 80 percent. However, this positive rate also shows that there remains work to be done.
Approximately 95 percent of adult childhood cancer survivors suffer from at least one long-term late effect as a result of their cancer or its therapy. And, across Europe, approximately 35,000 children and adolescents under the age of 18 are newly diagnosed with cancer each year. In order to give every child a chance to beat cancer, further research projects as well as collaborations between hospitals and research institutions are necessary.
And that is where we come in. Join Stiftung Juno Kinderkrebshilfe as an advocate in our mission of achieving a day when every child with cancer can live a long and healthy life.
