MISSION


To ensure that all children and adolescents who suffer from cancer have the best prognosis and quality of life.

 

There are 12 types of childhood cancer
and countless subtypes.

 

Pediatric cancer is different from adult cancer. It requires
a very high level of
specialized expertise and treatment.

Some types of
childhood cancer are so complex that they
demand even greater expertise.

Brain cancer, with more than 120 tumor subtypes, is just one example of the enormous challenge of treating this disease.

The lack of specialization decreases the likelihood
of a good outcome and increases the risk
of relapse. 

There are children and adolescents who do not win their battle simply because they do not have access to the highest level of expertise.

Many survivors will suffer serious or life threatening side effects because they lack access to specialized treatment.
