Every 36 minutes a child in the United States is diagnosed with cancer. In fact, it’s the number one cause of death by disease in children in this country. With major treatment advances, more than 85% of children diagnosed with cancer survive five years or more. This is a huge improvement from the mid-1970s, when the 5-year survival rate was about 58%.
