Background

Among children ages 0-14, brain and central nervous system tumors are the leading cause of cancer-related deaths.

There are about 28,000 children and teenagers living in the United States with primary brain or central nervous system tumors and an estimated 4,600 more children will be diagnosed each year.

The high death toll reveals a need to quickly find more effective treatment options and a cure.
