Without adequate national awareness of the urgent, unmet needs of children with cancer, the failure of the medical research system to adequately address childhood cancer will continue as progress remains a high-grade uphill battle. Randy Hinton is a childhood cancer advocate from South Carolina, and father to Haley who he lost in the 2000s to DIPG, a deadly and prevalent brain tumor in children. Despite advances in advocacy to change and instate policies which help bring needed attention and funding to childhood cancer research and treatment, little has changed for most children with cancer, especially those with brain cancer--the most prevalent and deadly cancer subtype in children.
