"Childhood cancers make up less than 1% of all cancers diagnosed each year. About 10,450 children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2014. Childhood cancer rates have been rising slightly for the past few decades.
Because of major treatment advances in recent decades, more than 80% of children with cancer now survive 5 years or more (important to take note, that this means a child can be in remission for 5 years and then die!, this is where the “5 year survival rate” comes from. Those children who have been killed by this monster, most were once part of that 80%!) . Overall, this is a huge increase since the mid-1970s, when the 5-year survival rate was about 60%. Still, survival rates vary depending on the type of cancer and other factors. Survival rates for different cancer types are listed in the section, “Surviving childhood cancer.”
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in children (after accidents). About 1,350 children younger than 15 years old are expected to die from cancer in 2014.” (x)
"Nothing feels like when I’m respected or when I get on stage and see that I’m changing people’s lives. Those are the things that matter and at this point in my life, that’s what I’m striving for… Growth, happiness, fun… enjoy your life. It’s short. That’s the message."

Class never runs scared. It is sure-footed and confident, and it can handle whatever comes along. Class has a sense of humor. It knows that a good laugh is the best lubricant for oiling the machinery of human relations.
