The Alliance for Childhood Cancer represents more than thirty national patient advocacy groups and professional  medical and scientific organizations.  

The  Alliance was established in 2001 to advocate on behalf of the youngest cancer patients. Patient advocates, many of whom are either cancer survivors themselves or are parents of children with cancer, are joined by health care professionals and others representing the multidisciplinary spectrum of cancer care in a unique alliance that brings concerned parties together to advance the interests of children with cancer.
