This September during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, World Child Cancer is celebrating an important milestone. One year ago, the World Health Organization joined our call to action and announced a new effort – the WHO Global Initiative for Childhood Cancer – with the aim of reaching at least a 60% survival rate for children with cancer by 2030. We know this is possible as World Child Cancer has raised survival rates from 10% to 60% in some of our program areas already.
Since the beginning, World Child Cancer has been advocating for governments to give more priority to childhood cancer. We are so pleased to see the momentum growing toward this ambitious goal. Please join our community in kicking childhood cancer and make your donation today!
