15-February-2022 – 15th of February is a very sensitive day dedicated to the fight of the little heroes. International Childhood Cancer Day is celebrated every year on February 15, at the initiative of the International Confederation of Childhood Cancer Parent Organizations (ICCCPO), to inform the world about childhood cancer.
Every year, about 250,000 children worldwide are diagnosed with cancer, of which only 20% have access to proper medical care. 80% of them come from middle and low income countries. More than 150,000 deaths each year could have been avoided if all children had been diagnosed and treated early. 70% - 80% of children who have access to specialized treatment are doing well with the progress of medicine and due to the adequacy of medicines and qualified scientific staff. It is estimated that around 20 children die of cancer every day in Europe. (Source: https://www.sansimera.gr/worldays/197)
In Greece, about 300 children are affected annually by cancer, mainly leukemia. Cancer in children is the second most common cause of death after accidents. But at the same time, 8 out of 10 children who suffer from leukemia today are being treated, and that's the message we all need to keep. (Source: https://www.sansimera.gr/worldays/197)
