Pediatric Cancer Research

We will increase our investments in pediatric cancer research next year.

Each year, nearly 1,000 children are diagnosed with cancer – a life-threatening diagnosis for many children and a life-changing moment for everyone who loves them.

To improve federal health research that can help lead to better outcomes and healthier lives for these young patients, we will move forward with investing an additional $30 million next year in pediatric cancer research. We will also work closely with families, experts, and researchers over the next year to develop a long-term plan to ensure pediatric cancer research has the funding it needs to be sustainable and to help families when they need help most.
