Create Healthier Lives for Childhood Cancer Survivors

Empowered By

The Children’s Cause for Cancer Advocacy (CCCA), founded in 1999 as The Children’s Cause, Inc., was established to take a leadership role in advocacy and training on national issues affecting childhood cancer.

About the Petition

An estimated 13,500 youths under the age of 20 are diagnosed with cancer every year, and as many as two-thirds who survive are likely to experience at least one late effect of treatment, including issues linked to the brain, endocrine system, or several other vulnerable areas. However, the U.S. doesn’t have a coordinated model for care, leading many survivors to die later in their lives; patients in impoverished areas are even more likely to be affected.

H.R. 2058 — the Childhood Cancer Survivors’ Quality of Life Act — seeks to improve the lives of these cancer survivors and their families. It will create pilot programs to develop and strengthen models for childhood cancer care, and design comprehensive, long-term follow-up services for survivors.

Kids with cancer will always be at a higher risk for illness, so it’s time to create a united effort to protect them. Stand with Children’s Cause Cancer Advocacy and urge Congress to pass this bill.

To provide sufficient care for childhood cancer survivors, you need to pass H.R. 2058.

There are currently 360,000 survivors of pediatric cancer, but we still don’t have a national system in place for their care and psychological treatment. H.R. 2058 will create a model for treatment and long-term services for those with chronic illness in adulthood.

We can’t let young cancer survivors suffer life-threatening effects later in life. Honor the call of Children’s Cause Cancer Advocacy and pass H.R. 2058.
