Brain cancer now leading childhood cancer killer
NEW YORK - Brain cancer is now the deadliest childhood cancer in the U.S.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says when most people think of childhood cancer, they think of leukemia.

The CDC says in 2014, 445 child deaths were from leukemia, but 534 deaths were from brain cancer.
