As we all know, cancer does not hold back when times are tough. An estimated 300,000+ new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 each year worldwide. Still, just 4% of the federally-funded annual budget from the National Cancer Institute is allocated for pediatric cancer research. As I’ve said before, research cures cancer, so we can’t rest until we’ve cured everybody. This creed is still our commitment and our goal.
