Cancer is diagnosed each year in about 175,000 children ages 14 and under worldwide.
This is a statistic from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Thanks to better therapies and treatments invented at St. Jude, the childhood cancer survival rate is improving every day!
