Childhood cancer remains the number one cause of death by disease in the U.S. and around the world. In spite of that alarming statistic, 29 state cancer plans do not have any mention of childhood cancer. ACCO works with state governments to raise awareness, change policy, add childhood cancer language to state cancer plans, as well as work towards reducing the disparity in adult and pediatric state cancer research appropriations. Join us as we lead at the state and federal level. Take action today.
