According to the CDC 2009 statistics: In the U S, cancer is the second most common cause of death among children between the ages of 1 and 14. More than 16 out of every 100,000 children and teens in the U.S. were diagnosed with cancer, and nearly 3 of every 100,000 died from the disease. The most common cancers in children were leukemia (cancer of the bone marrow and blood) and brain and central nervous system cancers. University of Minnesota research showed patients in first or second remission from the leukemia had a significantly lower likelihood of leukemia recurrence if they were transplanted with two Umbilical Cord Blood units than if they were transplanted with one (19 percent vs. 34 percent). Such research needs funding. Learn how taking cancer kids hunting is raising money for cancer research.
