Please take a look at this Fox Sports Article: Scott Fujita Gets Behind the Childhood Cancer Fight
 
The two Cleveland Teens in the picture got things rolling when they contacted Scott Fujita about a childhood cancer awareness initiative with the NFL. Please refer to the facts below about childhood cancer.
 
The goal of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is to increase awareness of the need for more research funding, programs that support survivors and answers that help find a cure. 
 
Fund Research
 
Childhood cancer research is severely underfunded. 
• Only 4% of U.S federal funding is allocated to childhood cancer research 
• Close to 0% of pharmaceutical company research dollars are spent on childhood cancer as compared to over 60% on adult cancers 
• Only 2 drugs have been developed for pediatric cancers in the past 20 years 
 
Approximately 13,500 children are diagnosed annually with cancer as compared to 1.6 million adults. Childhood cancer is not a “large enough” market in comparison. 
 
Research your donations. Many cancer-related organizations devote less than 5% of donations received to childhood cancer. 
 
Support Survivors
 
Surviving childhood cancer comes with consequences.
• 2/3 of survivors will suffer from long term effects 
• 40% suffer from severe illnesses or die from illnesses such as a secondary cancer 
• By the time a survivor reaches 45, more than 90% will have a chronic health problem 
 
Childhood cancer differs from adult cancers significantly. Children’s bodies are in developmental stages and cancer treatments affect that development substantially. Many cognitive and physical abilities are altered for life.
 
Radiation to a child’s brain can significantly damage cognitive function, limit the ability to read, do basic math, and tell time or even talk. Physical and cognitive disabilities may prevent childhood cancer survivors from fully participating in school, social activities and eventually work, causing depression and feelings of isolation.
