Advances in cancer diagnosis, treatment, and supportive care have turned previously fatal diseases of childhood into conditions that can be largely cured or controlled. It is currently estimated that over 80% of children diagnosed with cancer today will be alive at 5 years, and 10-year survival has surpassed 75%. There are already over 329,600 childhood cancer survivors in the U.S. alone, 24% of whom were diagnosed over 30 years ago.
