September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
What does Gold mean to you? Let's paint social media, our towns, everywhere we go GOLD - we need to share the Gold and raise awareness for Childhood Cancer.
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Families, caregivers, charities and research groups across the United States observe September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. In the U.S., almost 13,000 children under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer every year; approximately 1/4 of them will not survive the disease. A diagnosis turns the lives of the entire family upside down. The objective of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is to put a spotlight on the types of cancer that largely affect children, survivorship issues, and - importantly - to help raise funds for research and family support.
