September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Cancer. It is a battle too many of our young children and teenagers must face every day. Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease among U.S. children from birth to age 15. Each year, more than 10,000 new cases of pediatric cancer are diagnosed—approximately 46 children and adolescents every day.
The STOP Childhood Cancer Alliance wants to see these statistics change. We hope to be the driving force in increasing awareness of pediatric cancer and enhancing support for the young people fighting this disease—and the clinicians and researchers who are helping them.
Gov. Nathan Deal signed a proclamation declaring September Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Throughout the month, get involved by making donations, volunteering or working with Blue Skies and the STOP Childhood Cancer Alliance to raise awareness about this devastating disease.
