Aflac presents Chasing Cancer with Dr. Douglas Graham and Catherine Blades,

ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY MORE THAN 10,000 CHILDREN ARE DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER EACH YEAR. THANKFULLY, MORE CHILDREN THAN EVER ARE SURVIVING THIS HORRIBLE DISEASE, BUT THERE’S STILL A LOT OF WORK TO DO. LESS THAN FIVE PERCENT OF GOVERNMENT FUNDING FOR CANCER RESEARCH GOES TO THE KIDS.

THAT’S WHY THE WASHINGTON POST HAS TEAMED UP WITH AFLAC, ONE OF THE LARGEST CORPORATE CONTRIBUTERS TO CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH IN THE COUNTRY, TO CREATE A FIRST OF ITS KIND FORUM DESIGNED TO KEEP THE CONVERSATION MOVING FORWARD IN AN EFFORT TO FIND A CURE.

IT’S CALLED “CHASING CANCER” AND HERE TO TELL US MORE ABOUT IT IS DR. DOUGLAS GRAHAM, THE DIRECTOR OF THE AFLAC CANCER CENTER IN ATLANTA AND CATHERINE BLADES IS SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT OF CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS AT AFLAC

2.    DR. GRAHAM, WHAT IS THE CURRENT CURE RATE FOR KIDS WITH CANCER?

3.    WHAT ARE SOME OF THE CHALLENGES WE NEED TO OVERCOME TO FIND A CURE?

4.    CATHERINE, HOW CAN WE GET PEOPLE INVOLVED IN EFFORTS TO FIND A CURE?

5.    DR GRAHAM, WHAT HAS SUPPORT FROM COMPANIES LIKE AFLAC MEANT TO THIS CAUSE?

6.    WHERE CAN WE GO FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ‘CHASING CANCER’ AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS LOOKING FOR A CURE FOR CHILDHOOD CANCERS?
