Leukemia is one of the major diseases endangering children's health. However, with the development of medicine, leukemia is no longer an incurable disease. 80-90 percent of the children can be relieved by chemotherapy, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and other treatment measures, and 60-70 percent of the children even can be cured. However, the high cost of treatment is unbearable for poor families.
In May 2016, the CCTF established the "Summer Fund" and provides charitable aid to poor children with leukemia through social fundraising. The fund also works on drawing the public's attention to leukemia children and enabling the public to learn about leukemia and be aware that leukemia can be cured. In addition, it calls on all sectors of society to care for leukemia children.
