How Will You Help Combat Childhood Cancer?

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know:

  • 1 in every 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer
  • In the U.S., one out of every five children with cancer will not survive
  • The vast majority of kids who do survive will suffer long-term side effects
  • 14,583 kids will be diagnosed with cancer this month alone (stats)

Our incredible community is all too familiar with childhood cancer and, if you can find the time this month, I’m humbly asking you to spread awareness about childhood cancer and its lack of research, funding and congressional attention.

[Tweet “In the last 20 years, only two major drugs have been developed for children.”]

Here are ways to can help spread awareness:
