About Our Walk
Our first walk took place in Oct. 2009, the month and year that Alex Green was diagnosed at the age of 5 with Stage IV Wilm?s Tumor. The walk was not about raising money or awareness but rather was therapeutic for the family and friends involved; the sole purpose was to get together in support of Alex and family at the beginning of their battle with pediatric cancer.
Pediatric Cancer TRUTHS
Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children and adolescents in the United States.Each year in the US approximately 13,500 children & adolescents 18 yrs and under are diagnosed with cancer. Approximately 20% of all children with cancer will die from their disease, a secondary cancer, or complications due to treatments. Incidence of invasive pediatric cancers is up 29% in the past 20 years.The average age of death for a child with cancer is 8.
All proceeds from this year?s walk will go to The Truth365/Arms wide open who in turn gives 100% of the amount raised to a dedicated ?Dream Team? of researchers and oncologists solely for childhood cancer research. Please visit www.thetruth365.org to learn more about the many misconceptions about pediatric cancer.
