DECA’S Possible Impact
If… 225,000 members raise $10 each = $2,250,000 to fund MULTIPLE Clinical Trials for Children Battling Cancer!!
Why is this important?
Cancer is the number one cause of death by disease among children.
Each day, 43 kids in the U.S. are expected to be diagnosed with cancer. Approximately 1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer before their 20th birthday.
More than 95% of childhood cancer survivors experience significant health-related issues by the age of 45 because of current treatment options.
Only 4% of the billions of dollars the government spends annually on cancer research is directed towards treating childhood cancer.
