Understanding Childhood Cancer: A brief overview of its challenges

By Seynab Farah, Parker Project Volunteer

The world of childhood cancer is a sobering reality that affects families worldwide. To truly understand its impact, it is important to understand cancer itself. Our body comprises various cells, each playing a unique role within our tissues and organs. However, when these cells transform and start to grow uncontrollably and spread to foreign areas of the body, this is when alarm bells ring. These abnormal cells can then invade and destroy healthy organs and tissues, leading to serious health problems.
