Worldwide, there are more than 300,000 children under the age of 18 who are diagnosed with some form of cancer. September is dedicated as Childhood Cancer Awareness to bring attention to the children affected by this serious disease, show the important of life-saving research, and joining people together to help make a difference in the children’s lives.
WHAIC pulled data for children under 18 years of age from the years 2017-2019, the trend of childhood cancer visits has decreased from 2017-2019. Lymphoma and Wilma tumor (Kidney Cancer) were the top two types diagnosed for Wisconsin Children. These are also the same top two cancer types most diagnosed nationwide.
Male children were diagnosed more than female children-about 2,100 more diagnoses than females. When looking at race, white children account for 92 percent of all cases.
The COVID-19 Situational Awareness Update was developed by the Wisconsin Hospital Association Information Center (WHAIC) in collaboration with the Department of Health Services (DHS). This dashboard is dynamic and we expect to make additional enhancements to it over the coming days/weeks.
