Did you know that kids get cancer too? Cancer is the #1 cause of death for children and the fourth leading cause of death for teenagers - about 4 children die in our country every day from cancer. The two most common cancers in children are leukemias and brain tumors. The average length of treatment is 2 to 5 years for kids and it isn’t easy – it affects them both physically and emotionally. In Nevada, we expect 200 kids to be diagnosed with cancer in 2012.
