Lung cancer in children !

Recommended Posts

On my local news channel they had a story this evening about a 5 year old child who was celebrating finishing 12 rounds of chemo.

This little girl has Pleuropulmonary  Blastoma.  They said that 30-50 infants and children are diagnosed a year in the USA with this type of lung cancer. They said this little girl would have PT and OT this summer to get stronger and hopefully will start  kindergarten this fall.


I know several young people that got lung cancer but had no idea that children that young were getting lung cancer.
