The annual Gold Out Game against Brookfield East is this Friday. Fans from both schools will be wearing gold to help raise awareness of childhood cancer and to support those impacted by childhood cancer. Elmbrook Community, We Fight Together! "Childhood cancer" commonly refers to any cancer diagnosed in an individual under the age of 18 There are 46 children/adolescents diagnosed with cancer every single day in the USA. That's more than two classrooms' full every. single. day. After accidents, cancer is the number one cause of death in children under age 15. There are close to 90 types of cancer that are unique to children and adolescents. "Childhood cancer" is not just adult cancer in a smaller body. They are biologically different diseases needing their own research. Of the Nation's entire budget for cancer research, only 4% goes to finding cures for childhood cancer. 96% goes toward finding cures for adult cancer (which in many cases, already have a better prognosis). Because of this, the overall survival rate for most types of childhood cancer has sadly not improved in decades. 95% of childhood cancer survivors will face a serious health condition by the time they are 45 years old. Together, we can find less toxic therapies to treat cancer in children. Brookfield-based Little Warrior Foundation has raised north of $2M in the last two years and opened two clinical trials for kids fighting cancer, thanks to the support of the community, including the Gold Out Game! High schoolers can change the world! Thanks for all you do.
