"Pediatric Cancer still remains the number one killer of children, aside from accidents. And, the therapy remains very difficult and fraught with many side effects. The funds raised by CCRF help to fill the tremendous gap between the need for research support to carry out the many important new ideas being generated by physicians and scientists throughout this country in the treatment of childhood cancer. We hope that you share our emotions about the goals and commitment of Children's Cancer Research Fund in providing for research to make bold new strides in childhood cancer."
