Abstract

Childhood cancer ranks high among public concerns, evoking the public’s fear of cancer as well as the special emotional attention that is focused on children. Although it is rare, its priority is elevated on the basis of years of life lost and its prominence among life-threatening diseases of children. Despite great success in the treatment of childhood cancers such as Wilms’tumor and leukemia, cancer continues to be life threatening in children.
