The Revolution Against Childhood Cancer

Childhood cancer affects thousands of children and young adults in the United States each year, and yet it receives less than 4% of the nearly $5 billion in research dollars allotted to cancer annually. The cancer community is one that is expansive, and vulnerable, and strong, and powerful. Fundraising is important, and service is important, but what we need is to “gather people in the childhood cancer community and in the general public…to start a revolution against childhood cancer.” We can and must use our power as a community to make a REAL difference in the pervasive neglect and biases in the inequitable system of cancer funding. Please add your online signature to this petition to let the National Cancer Institute know that we DEMAND that more funds be allocated to pediatric research (https://www.change.org/p/national-cancer-institute-allocate…).
