New York, NY, December 08, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- According to the latest data of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a specialized cancer agency of the World Health Organization, the global numbers on childhood cancer increased over the last decades. With almost 300,000 new cases in 2016, that is 820 new cases per day, having Leukemia was the most common in children aged 15 years or less. 
If we look at all childhood cancer cases in the US, the numbers are still shocking. Each year more than 15,000 children and young adults are diagnosed with different forms of cancer. 
The causes of childhood cancer still remain ambiguous, however, it is known that it cannot be treated exactly the same as adult cancer. Current treatments are toxic to the children and often affect their development. This is why it is very important to study what causes childhood cancer and to further research for specialized treatments that will be less aggressive to them.
There are many foundations across the United States that put all their effort to raise funds and support pediatric oncology researchers to fund their investigations, as well as to help the kids and their families affected.
It is within this context that LANGRIA has teamed up with Children’s Cancer Research Fund – a foundation that was born in Minnesota in 1979, supporting and funding the brightest and boldest minds in the field of pediatric oncology. LANGRIA will be donating one of their best-selling items, the Glittering Flannel Mermaid Tail Blanket to the children battling cancer to the Minnesota Hospital.
Under the hashtag #Langria4Kids, the campaign’s goal is to communicate one strong message: “playfulness and smiles should never be taken away from children.”
The brand invites people to join, collaborate and give back during this festive season so that the children can receive these blankets for Christmas. For every customer in the US purchasing 2 or more blankets until the campaign ends (December 12th), LANGRIA will donate 1 to every child up to a total of 50 blankets. Through this campaign, LANGRIA wants to carry out a further message to people worldwide that they want to make a difference for children battling cancer and they invite people to be a part of it too. Even though there is still a long way to go to beat childhood cancer, but no one should give up.
