Nearly 16,000 kids in the U.S. are newly diagnosed with cancer each year — 43 every single day. According to the National Cancer Institute, nearly 2000 children and adolescents up to age 19 die of cancer each year.

Maybe the numbers don’t sound that high and that’s why only 4% of U.S. federal funding is dedicated to childhood cancer research. Trust me, 4% is not enough.
