Unite in September for National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, a time when we can come together as a community to raise awareness and support for local children and families fighting cancer or serious blood diseases. This cause is critical because more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States. Shockingly, one in four will not survive. These numbers are alarming, and we must take action to help patients today and save lives tomorrow. We invite you to join us in raising awareness and support for pediatric cancer and blood disorders. Help spread the word about our cause and help others understand why their help matters!
