Ronald Tintin and the project Ronning Against Cancer will participate at the International Childhood Cancer Day 2017 on Wednesday, February 15 with the theme “ Better Access to Care for Chlidren & Adolescents with Cancer Everywhere” (Each year, more than 150,000 children are diagnosed with cancer) through an online campaign on their website (http://www.ronningagainstcancer.xyz / social media ‘Twitter : https://twitter.com/R_AgainstCancer – Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/RonningAgainstCancer/).
Cancer is the uncontrolled growth and spread of cells. It can affect almost any part of the body. The growths often invade surrounding tissue and can metastasize to distant sites.There are more than 100 types of cancer.
Cancer remains the leading cause of death from disease among children. The major types of cancers in children ages 0 to 14 years are acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), brain and other central nervous system (CNS) tumors, and neuroblastoma.
What is International Childhood Cancer Day ?
International Childhood Cancer Day is celebrated annually on 15 February to raise awareness and to express support for children and adolescents with cancer, survivors and their families.
Why International Childhood Cancer Day is important ?
Each year, more than 150,000 children are diagnosed with cancer – a disease that touches all regions of the world and impacts countless families and communities. With access to quality care, more than 80% of children with cancer can survive, living full and healthy lives. However, many children in low-income and middle income countries do not receive or complete care, and, as a result, over 90% of childhood cancer deaths occur in low resource settings.
A global response is needed to give every child the best chance of surviving cancer free – to raise awareness, improve access, better understand why and where children are diagnosed with cancer through cancer registries, and offer the best possible treatment, palliative care and support for children and their families. World Health Organization (WHO) has expanded the WHO Model Lists of Essential Medicines with additional medicines to treat childhood and adult cancers.
This will help promote access to low cost, high impact treatment. WHO has also provided guidance on caring for children with cancer in WHO guidelines on the pharmacological treatment of persisting pain in children with medical illnesses. These initiatives lay the groundwork for broad stakeholder action.
On International Childhood Cancer Day, we pause to recognize contributions from advocates around the world and call for renewed collaboration to care for children with cancer globally.
Join us (Team Les Aventures de Ronald Tintin, Le Journal Intime de Sublima, Ronning Against Cancer, Super Professeur) to support ” Better Access to Care for Chlidren & Adolescents with Cancer Everywhere” and make a difference in the fight against childhood cancer on 15 February, International Childhood Cancer Day.
