Cancer in Teens
Around 150 per million children worldwide are diagnosed with cancer before the age of 15.
Most are diagnosed in late stages because of lack of awareness, which leads to longer treatment, more disabilities and a lower survival rate.
This can drastically improve with more knowledge shared about the disease – and this is one of our missions at CHOC!
CHOC and STA Teens Cancer Project
CHOC has partnered with STA Travel on a teens project. The purpose of this project is to create cancer awareness with a long term focus on teens aged 13 to 18 years, and to raise funds to ensure that CHOC continuously provides comprehensive support to teenagers with cancer and their families, as well as teen survivors.
