the 1970s, the five-year survival rate for
cancer in children was 58%. That num-
ber increased to 80% by the late 1990s
and early in the 2000s. Of the childhood
cancer diagnoses, more than one-third
are leukemia. Although cancer is the

children, it is still a relatively rare oc- $15,588 or $269 mo $16,488 or $275 mo $9,688 or $167 mo $8,988 or $166 mo
