International Childhood Cancer Day was established more than 20 years ago to draw attention to the disease in children and adolescents. A lot has happened since then, especially with regard to the therapies and the associated chances of recovery after a diagnosis: Today, 80% of the newly diagnosed cases, around 35,000 per year across Europe, have good prospects of recovery.
Stiftung Juno works with many other collaborators to ensure that every day, children and young people with cancer receive the best possible care. This includes sports and exercise therapy, which provides young patients with fun and a change, as well as physical fitness and better chances of cure. Therefore, our foundation supports sports programs for children and young people suffering from cancer.
We are also committed to ensuring that research into childhood cancer takes place at the highest level and that one day, our vision will become reality: all children with cancer can be cured.
