Pediatric cancers, leaps and bounds but tailor-made treatments are needed

  • Approximately 250,000 children worldwide get cancer every year.
  • In Italy there are about 1,400 new diagnoses of cancer in children up to 14 years and 800 in adolescents between 15 and 19 years.
  • Research has made enormous strides in the treatment of these pathologies: today in over 70% of cases – and for some forms of leukemia over 90% – the disease is defeated.
  • Yet adults, women, men, adolescents and children are all different from each other.
  • If for some diseases the treatment is the same – except for the doses of drug to be administered – for serious pathologies such as tumors the situation changes radically “.
  • The International Day dedicated to pediatric cancers is celebrated on 15 February.
  • At the heart of this year’s campaign is the participation of everyone as a key to success in being able to heal and treat children who get cancer in the best possible way: appropriate care is needed, at the right time and with specialized doctors.
  • They are also the pillars of the “Gold for kids” campaign launched in 2104 by the Veronesi Foundation in synergy with the Italian Association of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology (Aieop) and its Foundation (Fieop).
