A new study reveals some troubling statistics about childhood cancer.

Harvard researchers estimate that more than half of pediatric cancers are undiagnosed in Africa, South Central Asia, and the Pacific Islands.

That's a huge difference from North America and Europe, where 97% of kids are diagnosed and treated.

Experts say if health systems don't improve there could be nearly 3-million missed cases of childhood cancer worldwide by the year 2030.
