St. Baldrick’s Foundation
Childhood Cancer Research
In the 1950s, almost all kids diagnosed with cancer died. Because of research, today about 90% of kids with the most common type of cancer will live. But for many other types, progress has been limited, and for some kids there is still little hope for a cure.
Worldwide, every two minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer.
St. Baldrick’s chooses the research it funds very carefully. Leading pediatric oncology experts work with them to determine their research priorities, which help kids of all ages and with all types of childhood cancers.
