When cancer strikes young

The realities of childhood cancer around the world.
4 Comments

Nearly every three minutes, a child is diagnosed with cancer somewhere in the world. And every day, 250 die. As communities mark International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we’ll discuss what it takes to fight cancer as a kid and ask families how their lives change with the diagnosis. Children and their parents in both developed and developing countries will share their universal struggles and triumphs, and discuss how where they live plays a major role in determining their prognosis.

On today's episode, we speak to:
