Childhood Cancer Issue

While it’s the No. 1 cause of death by disease among children, cancer is still very rare. Less than 1 percent of cancer diagnoses are in people younger than 18. Yet for those diagnosed, and the people who dedicate careers to care for them, challenges remain. This issue of Life & Science magazine examines some of the unique challenges of childhood cancer and the ways in which Bristol-Myers Squibb supports young oncology patients.
