THERE are between 110 and 130 new cases of childhood cancer each year in the Valencia Region.

Marking International Day of Childhood Cancer, the Association of Parents and Children with Cancer (Aspanion) said survival rates in children aged up to 14 with cancer is now at around 80 per cent but said “much remains to be done” in the field of cancer treatment and research to ensure the survival rate further increases.
