The health and well-being of children all over the world are very serious concerns for men and women everywhere. People are especially concerned with researching to help decrease the number of children who die young from illnesses like cancer. It looks like the fundraising, treatment, and research efforts are not going to waste. USA News is reporting that the childhood cancer death rates are continuing to fall. This news is motivational to researchers and people all over the United States.

This news comes directly from the Center for Disease Control. USA News reports that the organization is reporting that the number of children who die from cancer has fallen 20% since 1999. Experts in this area are very excited, as this is a trend that has continued since the 1970s. Dr. Andrew Kung has released some statements on the news very recently.

“We’ve continued to cure a growing percentage of children with leukemia…What’s remarkable is, there have been advances every decade [since the 1970s],Now we’re curing about 90 percent of kids.”

In addition to this, leukemia is no longer the number one childhood cancer killer. USA News also reports that the number of child leukemia-related deaths has fallen so drastically that now the number one childhood cancer killer is brain cancer. As the amount of children passing away from leukemia has decreased, brain cancer deaths have remained stable. The reports give them hope that the number can continue to substantially decrease in the future as technology and treatment options develop.

The health and well-being of children all over the world continues to be a major concern for the public. Doctors around the world are actively trying to find ways to heal the sick children of the world. News like this brings joy to many people and gives people more hope for the future.
