Run to Fight Children’s Cancer shines a light on one of the most overlooked and underfunded areas of cancer.
According to the National Cancer Institute, 15,270 adolescents and children ages 19 and younger are diagnosed with cancer each year in the U.S. Moreover, there are 600,000 childhood cancer survivors —two-thirds of whom experience chronic and even life-threatening secondary effects from toxic cancer treatments. Still, pediatric cancer continues tobe one of the most overlooked and underfunded categories of all cancer research.
The event is presented by Children’s Cancer Network and hosted by Grand Canyon University. Proceeds from the Run to Fight Children's Cancer stay in our community and directly benefit families through Phoenix Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Cancer Network.
I spoke with Program Specialist Tiffany Creek from the Children's Cancer Network. You can listen to the interview here and get more pof a personal sense of what this event provides for families.
