Background to the need for a scholarship system for those who have experienced childhood cancer
In Japan, approximately 2,000 to 2,500 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. Thanks to medical advances, the 5-year survival rate has increased to 70% to 90%, but about half of children with cancer who have completed treatment experience late effects (treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy to the growing body). After-effects caused by the effects of traumatic events), these people have difficulty pursuing higher education, finding employment, and becoming independent later in life. Although the patient recovered after hospitalization and treatment, he will continue to suffer from late effects for the rest of his life, and is a student who has to go to the hospital every month to study.He has abnormal eyesight and visual field due to aftereffects, and is unable to regulate his body temperature due to endocrine dysfunction. Some students find it difficult to work part-time due to physical reasons such as difficulty standing.
Therefore, Gold Ribbon Network, a certified NPO, has implemented a non-refundable scholarship system for childhood cancer survivors so that students with a strong desire to study do not give up on pursuing higher education due to financial reasons. I am.
Since the start of the system in 2015, the average income of scholarship recipient households up to the 2024 academic year is 2.48 million yen, and the percentage of single parents is 66.7%. There are many current situations. In addition, in this recruitment, we have set up a slot for childhood cancer survivors who were affected by the Noto Peninsula earthquake that occurred on New Year’s Day this year. We will provide financial support to children who are facing even more difficult circumstances due to the disaster, so that they can continue to study. By supporting students to pursue higher education that will lead to their future dreams, we are working to solve one of the social issues of childhood cancer survivors that is not widely known yet. In order to deliver information to children and their guardians who need this scholarship system, and to let as many people as possible know about the current situation faced by childhood cancer survivors, we would like to ask all members of the press about this matter. We would appreciate it if you could publish it.
