Facts about Childhood CNS Tumors

Today, there are more than 28,000 children (ages 0-19) living with brain or spinal cord tumors, commonly referred to as Central Nervous System (CNS) tumors. Over 2,500 children are diagnosed every year (seven every day). Their lives are changed forever. Treatments for pediatric CNS tumors are limited and they cause more deaths than any other type of pediatric cancer.  The Making Headway Foundation works to help these children, and their families through a variety of programs, services, and research.  Learn more at http://makingheadway.org/facts/.
