My Story

13 Aug 2020

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Each year, more than 15,000 kids and young adults are diagnosed with cancer—that’s about 43 per day.

Though the 5-year-survival rate for childhood cancers has reached 80 percent, nearly 2,000 kids under age 19 die each year, making cancer the leading killer of children by disease.

And that’s just in the United States. In 2016, over 300,000 kids and young adults were diagnosed worldwide.

Childhood cancer is still a big problem because children’s cancer can’t be treated exactly like adult cancers (where most of federal research funding goes.) Current treatments are toxic, affect a child’s development and can be decades old. To treat childhood cancer in the best way possible, we need to create specialized treatments just for kids.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you,

Jon.
