In the last 20 years, Childhood Cancer has been the #1 disease killer of children. Also within that span of time, there has only been three cancer treatments specifically developed and approved for children. This means most children are treated with dose-adjusted adult treatments and that most survivors experience devastating side effects of their too-toxic treatments.
CureSearch’s goal is to protect the future children who become diagnosed with cancer by delivering better, less toxic treatments. To do that, they need as much financial help as possible. Make a difference donating.
