    Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

    Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death for those aged 14 and younger. According to St. Jude, 43 children in the United States are diagnosed with a form of cancer every day. When looking at it worldwide, it is estimated that 400,000 children are diagnosed with some type of pediatric cancer each year. In the U.S. alone, there are 480,000 childhood cancer survivors.

    The WHA Information Center analyzed inpatient and outpatient hospital data from 2017-2021. Brain and spinal cord tumors hold the highest visit counts for patients aged 0-19 years old. The next highest visit counts were for lymphoma. In terms of gender, boys had a higher visit count (58% of total visits) than girls. The ZIP codes with the highest visit counts for childhood cancer are in Dane and Brown County. Visits for childhood cancer have gone down when looking at counts by year and quarter from 2017 to 2021.
