Each year in the U.S. there are an estimated 15,780 children between the ages of birth and 19 years of age who are diagnosed with cancer. Approximately 1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer before their 20th birthday.
While childhood cancer is consistently underfunded at the government level, raising awareness will lead to more support. Ultimately leading to more cures. There are children alive today that would not be because of our supporters' dedication to finding cures for all children. We truly believe that film is the most engaging way to convey a message and raise awareness.
