CHILDHOOD CANCER FACTS

  • In BC on average, 130 – 150 children are newly diagnosed with cancer every year
  • At any given time more than 350 children are in active treatment and as many as 1500 are being followed as out-patients on a long term basis
  • 250,000 new cases of childhood cancer are diagnosed each year
    Canada has a higher childhood cancer rate than any other
    developed country
  • 70% survive with proper diagnosis and treatment
  • 80% of children with cancer live in developing countries and do not
    have access to adequate diagnosis and treatment
  • Parents become full time carers when dealing with prolonged life-
    threatening illness of a child – they need their employment and
    income protected
  • Long-term effects can, for example, affect education, ability to get
    work and insurance – these children and young people deserve
    rehabilitation without discrimination
