CANCER Can Also Afflict Children
CANCER – One terrifying word, especially when it happens to your beloved son/daughter.
Happiness of childhood of the children area taken away and torn apart. Their world stops to spin
and will never be the same as before.

According to WHO (World Health Organization)
400,000 children aged 0-19 are diagnosed with cancer each year, equivalent to
1 child every 2 minutes.

According to statistics, 1 in 5 children is helped, while 2/3 of children who seek treatment will experience long-term effects.

Some of the causes of death include delays in treatment / inaccuracies & misdiagnosis, barriers in accessing services, negligence in treatment and high recurrence rates.

Cancer in children cannot be prevented or identified by screening. The cause of which is not yet known, but it is estimated that 5% is due to genetic factors.

Cancer in children is different from cancer in adults, and must be treated differently.

Cancer in children does not look at social status, ethnicity, male or female. 

Treatment and cancer therapy in children is a long-term process (5 months – 2 years), and costs are high. The success of recovery depends greatly on the continuous treatment and therapy for both inpatient and outpatient.



 

 

Cancer is not a transmitted disease.
The good news,
cancer in children
can be healed
when detected or recognized early with the best treatment and therapy.

Cancer in children is a fairly complex problem considering that the treatment and / or therapy involves many parties other than parents, namely professionals and no less important, the role of the extended family, school and environment.

There are still limited supporting facilities for children with cancer and their families for both the inpatient and outpatient processes, especially for less affluent families in Indonesia.


Every sick child in Indonesia, as best as possible, is entitled to treatment and therapy to achieve recovery. Every child in Indonesian also has the right to learn and play even though he/she is sick.

This is what stirred the heart of the Founder of YKAKI who, as a parent, personally experienced the process of treatment and care of a child with cancer, and felt the responsibility of participating in the in the management of
cancer in children by establishing
YAYASAN KASIH ANAK KANKER INDONESIA
in Jakarta, on November 1st, 2006.

Since 2008, YKAKI has become an active member of the parents of cancer survivors, of the International Childhood Cancer International (CCI).

Being one of the 170 Member Organization in over 90 Countries on 5 Continents, opens up opportunities for YKAKI to learn and share experiences with similar organizations from around the world to help children who are fighting cancer.
