Am I the only one who has a lot of unanswered questions about my child’s cancer?

Did any other parents have to leave their jobs in order to care for their sick child?

Did my family’s health history have any bearing on my child’s cancer diagnosis?

Was our experience with childhood cancer typical?

The Childhood Cancer Database Project was created by Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to better understand how childhood cancer affects families. Its goal is to measure the personal and economic impact of childhood cancer and find ways to support families through the journey.

More than 1000 families are already a part of the Childhood Cancer Database Project.  Each family who shares their story makes the database stronger!  Join and be counted!

  • SURVEY FACT: 44% of participants in the Childhood Cancer Database Project mentioned that they had an experience during their pregnancy or at childbirth that they think may have contributed to their child’s cancer diagnosis. In addition to specific childbirth and pregnancy related events, other experiences included taking medicine and exposure to chemicals during pregnancy.

  • SURVEY FACT: Of the top 10 emotions participants recalled experiencing when their child was diagnosed with cancer FEAR, by far, was the most common.
