Every hour, a child is diagnosed with cancer. Every 6.5 hours, another young life is lost to this terrible disease. And you won’t believe the barriers standing in the way. Only 3.8% of federal government cancer research funding goes to children. So too often, kids are treated with drugs created to fight adult cancers, which can lead to chronic and even fatal side-effects. That’s why the Pediatric Cancer Foundation is partnering with top doctors and researchers nationwide to break down barriers to a cure and fast-track less toxic, more targeted therapies. With your help, we can crush pediatric cancer once and for all.
“When I Call” written and performed by Joey Tso and Trushar Patel. A PP+K Studios production.
Hannah was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) when she was just 4 years old, and the cancer had already spread to her brain. She had to endure over 2 years of aggressive treatment that included numerous blood and platelet transfusions, port infusions, spinals, shots and daily pills, as well as rigorous radiation on her brain. Throughout the adversity, Hannah’s attitude and infectious smile never wavered. She continued to sing, dance, tell jokes and swim. With the help of our dedicated team of doctors, Hannah is proud to say that she has reached the 3-year post-treatment mark. Today, she lives in Los Angeles and is pursuing her dream of being an actress. Something tells us that if cancer can’t stop her, Hollywood can’t either.
