CHILDHOOD CANCER INTERNATIONAL

Advancing Cure, Transforming Care

Childhood is a time of innocence and joy. Unfortunately, there is a growing, unrecognized menace that robs our children and adolescents of this special moment in their lives. Every year, more than 250,000 children and adolescents below 20, are diagnosed with cancer. 90,000 do not survive.

Many more remain undiagnosed and unreported as 80 per cent of these children are from low and middle income countries where health systems are weak, health services are often inaccessible and unaffordable and essential medicines are either not available or too expensive. Even developed countries are faced with the burden of childhood cancer as it is now the leading non-communicable disease (NCD) related cause of deaths in high income countries and a growing number of middle income countries.

CCI BELIEVES!

That every child and adolescent with cancer – regardless or financial of social class, race or native origin – deserves access to the best possible treatment and medical care. Parents of children with cancer must have access to the information they require to make informed decisions about their child’s treatment.

Families of children with cancer need to be active partners in the whole continuum of care: from diagnosis to follow up care.

​Children and adolescents with cancer and their families should not go through this journey alone. They need support, assistance and caring. ​
