Every day, 7 children in the United States die of pediatric cancer or treatment side effects.
While the cure rate for kids’ cancer has improved up to the current rate of about 80%, the side effects are terrible. 80% of those survivors will suffer long term side effects including learning disabilities, chronic pain, sterility, stunted growth, heart defects, and cancers caused by treatment. 20% of kids who survive treatment die within 25 years of their “cure.”
CKC focuses on funding the treatment of children in the most promising clinical trials at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Clinical trials are how we go from curing mice with cancer, to curing children with cancer – in innovative new ways that don’t have the dire outcomes of current protocols.
But these efforts require funding, and funding can be hard to come by.
That's where we come in...
