My Mission

Follow my Journey updates

Coast 2 Coast For the Kids is new non-profit organization structured to support the fight against pediatric cancer on a national scale. My name is Norman Horn, owner, organizer of this mission. I’m a Penn State Alumni on a quest to raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer. My mission and the purpose of this organization is to hike across the country from San Francisco, CA to Atlantic City, NJ with the hope to inspire meaningful action because cancer is the number one disease killer of children in the United States; more than asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and pediatric AIDS combined.

Cancer Facts

  • Childhood cancers are the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S. - more than asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and pediatric AIDS combined.

  • Childhood cancer is not a single disease, but rather many different types that fall into 12 major categories. Common adult cancers are extremely rare in children, yet many cancers are almost exclusively found in children.

  • Childhood Cancers are cancers that primarily affect children, teens, and young adults. When cancer strikes children and young adults it affects them differently than it would an adult.

  • Attempts to detect childhood cancers at an earlier stage, when the disease would react more favorably to treatment, have largely failed. Young patients often have a more advanced stage of cancer when first diagnosed. (Approximately 20% of adults with cancer show evidence the disease has spread, yet almost 80% of children show that the cancer has spread to distant sites at the time of diagnosis).
