Why is Child4Child important?
Every day, more than 700 children around the world are diagnosed with childhood cancer. That means that more than 250,000 children face this terrible diagnosis every year and sadly, more than 90,000 of these children simply won’t survive. Child4Child is the first international awareness campaign bringing together childhood cancer advocacy groups, parents’ groups, and survivors’ groups from around the world to work literally “in harmony” together to remind the world that even one death from childhood cancer is too many.
Who is organizing Child4Child?
Child4Child is an initiative of Childhood Cancer International (CCI), Garbergs Advertising Agency, the Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation, the American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO), and more than 180 CCI member organizations from more than 90 countries. The ACCO is a founding member of CCI and the sole American representative in this international advocacy group. Today, CCI is the largest global patient-support organization for childhood cancer, and like the ACCO is run almost entirely by parents and/or survivors, a connection that gives these groups special insight into what children and families battling childhood cancer and its long-term consequences need most. International Childhood Cancer Day, Child4Child, and similar initiatives by CCI and ACCO are not fundraising campaigns. They are awareness campaigns designed to remind children and families impacted by childhood cancer that they are not alone and to remind the world that the time has come to finally make childhood cancer history.
