Childhood Cancer Facts
Cancer is a leading cause of death for children and adolescents around the world.
Approximately 300,000 children aged 0 to 19 years old are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Childhood cancer generally cannot be prevented or screened.
In 2019, only 20% of countries had early detection guidelines. That same year, only 33% had a defined referral system for medical resources.
