➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Every year in Italy about 1,400 children and 800 adolescents (data from Airtum) are suffering from cancer. Pediatric cancers are still the leading cause of death by disease in children. In the last forty years the work and the abnegation of doctors and researchers have allowed to significantly increase the healings, reaching even 90 percent for some forms of leukemia. A lot has been done, but it is not enough. The Umberto Veronesi Foundation started the Gold for Kids project in 2014, to support medical care and research on childhood cancers and to promote correct scientific information. The project takes place in synergy with the Italian Association of Hematology and Pediatric Oncology (AIEOP) and its Foundation (Fieop). Thanks to the funds raised and the generosity of many supporters, treatment protocols, clinical studies and observational studies have been launched. In the two-year period 2014-2015 this made it possible to open two clinical trials and three observational studies on leukemia and lymphomas. In 2016 the funds raised were allocated to three treatment protocols for brain tumors, the most widespread in the pediatric age after leukemia but more difficult to treat. In 2017, two clinical trials were supported: one on the treatment of metastatic bone sarcomas and the innovative SAR-GEN project, which aims to analyze the genetic profiles of patients affected by sarcomas, to propose targeted and specific therapies. For 2018 Foundation Umberto Veronesi decided to support innovative treatments for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most widespread cancer in pediatric age, and for recurrent forms of sarcomas and soft-tissue tumors, still difficult to treat.
