THE TRUTH ABOUT CHILDHOOD CANCER IS UNACCEPTABLE!

CHILDHOOD CANCER TRUTH

Cancer kills more Australian children than all other diseases combined. Around 1 in 285 kids are diagnosed prior to reaching adulthood. Over 10,000 Australian children are fighting cancer now. Another 1,100 are diagnosed each year. 1 in 5 kids die within 5 years of diagnosis.

Current treatments are outdated and toxic. Side effects both short and long term are inhumane. 90% of childhood cancer survivors develop chronic, life long health problems. Survivors are at greater risk of developing secondary cancers. Overall survival is compromised.

CHILDHOOD CANCER REALITY

Childhood cancer is not the same as adult cancer. Childhood cancer does not discriminate and can affect any child. Improved survival rates are 100% reliant on research. There are no known risk factors and there is nothing we can do to prevent it.

Despite the wonderful advances made in medicine, childhood cancer survival rates have plateaued for nearly a decade! To date, paediatric cancer research has been insufficiently funded in Australia and internationally. Our children suffer and die as a consequence!
