September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
15,780 children under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer every year, according to the American Cancer Childhood Organization. 25% of those children will not survive the disease.
Additionally, Latino and black children are more likely to die of numerous childhood cancers than their white counterparts.
