Childhood Cancer 

  The St. Baldrick's Foundation (www.stbaldricks.org) reports it received more than $21 million in 2011 to help fund clinical trials for pediatric cancer research. Only 4 percent of all federal cancer research funding in the U.S. is earmarked for pediatric cancer research, according to the volunteer-driven St. Baldrick's. Cancers of the young, however, remain the leading cause of death by disease among children, with more than 160,000 children worldwide diagnosed with cancer annually.
