NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The American Cancer Society estimates 10,470 children in the United States under the age of 15 are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in 2022.

These institutions are best equipped to address patient needs, and they are a part of a worldwide network that is united in the fight to cure and eradicate childhood cancer.”

Hawkins, MD. “We remain steadfast that the clinical research done by COG today will continue changing the lives of children and young adults, leading to more effective treatments for those fighting cancer in the future.”
