Childhood cancer is curable if diagnosed early and treated properly. Since the cure rate is high among them and the total number of productive life years saved by curing these children is significantly high and therefore we are making a small effort in treating them appropriately by all the means of more worthwhile and fulfilling. Cancer in children constitutes 5.5% of total cancer cases in India according to the Indian Council for Medical Research. This percentage has more than doubled from 2.5% ten years ago. A disturbing reality, however, is that only around one in 10 of the childhood cancer cases receives complete therapy. As a consequence, while cure rates for common childhood cancers like lymphoma and leukaemia are over 80% in the developed world, in India, they have remained abysmally low at around 30%.
