15th of February is International Childhood Cancer Day (ICCD)!
ICCD is a global collaborative campaign to raise awareness about childhood cancer, and to express support for children and adolescents with cancer, the survivors and their families.
Children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer across the global in increasing numbers today in 2019. Up to 80% of those children live in low- and middle-income countries without the resources to fully cure or treat their disease. SIOP members work on all continents to increase early diagnosis and improve healthcare services to give these children/adolescents the best chance for cure. This effort requires nurses, physicians, pathologists, surgeons, psychologists, nutritionists and others who apply their expertise to support families and the children/adolescents in their cancer journey including survivorship.
Successful childhood cancer treatment infrastructure requires advocacy with governments, healthcare experts, community leaders and businesses to provide the resources for appropriate childhood cancer care.
Please join SIOP on ICCD 2019 as we highlight the action taken by all our members to strive for a cure and care for all children and adolescents with cancer across the world.
