CHEO

THERE ARE ABOUT 10,000 CANADIAN CHILDREN LIVING WITH CANCER

– Every $1 donated to research at CHEO equals more than $4 when leveraged through grants and other sources

– Cancer is the second leading cause of death for Canadian children ages 1 – 14 years old

– Radiation to a child’s brain can significantly impair cognitive function. If radiation is given at a very young age, it can impact the ability to read, do basic math, tell time or even talk

– It costs an average of $250,000 a year to run a small research lab

2017 CHEO SHOWCASING RYAN MERCER

In September, Ryan was diagnosed with Stage 4 Ewing Sarcoma, a rare and aggressive form of childhood bone cancer. In addition to the tumor on this spine there was evidence of metastatic disease on his left arm, pelvis and collarbone. Ryan went into full fighting mode and began compressed chemotherapy treatments every two weeks along with radiation therapy.

Ryan has a long road ahead as treatment is expected to last longer than the standard 12 month protocol for Ewing Sarcoma.
