A RED SWEATER FOR A GREATER CAUSE
With your help we will donate part of the proceeds to AIRC's research on cancers affecting children and young people.
In Italy, an estimated 1,400 children and teens under the age of 14 and about 900 adolescents between the ages of 15 and 19 are affected by cancer each year. Thanks to advances in research, about 82 percent of children and 86 percent of adolescents who have been diagnosed with cancer are alive five years after diagnosis: 3 out of 4 recover completely.
In 2023 alone, AIRC is supporting 78 pediatric cancer research projects and grants with a total investment of about 8.5 million euros and with the goal of being able to cure all young patients, thanks to the development of specific therapies that are increasingly effective and less toxic.
