America is great at beating childhood cancer and it’s about to get better

A Plus, a “positive journalism” site co-founded by Ashton Kutcher, highlights Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s oncologist Kira Bona’s research into the effects of poverty on childhood cancer outcomes, as well as resource specialist Joe Chabot’s work to help patient families with their material needs.

“Bona and her team knew from general pediatrics that children who come from low-income homes or high-poverty areas are more likely to be in poor health, have an infectious disease, and be hospitalized,” A Plus reports. “What they were unsure of is how those same children do against cancer.”
