Most children cannot be treated at a local hospital, and families must face the disruption of moving for treatment at a regional cancer center.
Please join us during the month of September as we advocate for childhood cancer awareness by taking part in one or more of the following:
- Proudly wear or simply display a gold ribbon, as the color gold represents all forms of childhood cancer. Be sure to tell anyone who asks why you are wearing or displaying the ribbon.
- Inspire others to take action and join our advocacy crusade by sharing the story of a courageous child currently battling cancer.
- Honor the memory of a child like Drake James Gratton who heroically battled cancer by explaining to others how your life was impacted and touched by that angel.
- Express to a family who has lost a child to cancer how their child’s legacy continues to motivate you.
- Make a donation in celebration of a childhood cancer survivor or in loving memory of a child taken too soon by the disease.
There are countless ways that each individual can raise awareness about this imperative cause. Listed above are only a few possibilities. If you have additional ideas on how to spread awareness, please contact us. We would love to hear your thoughts!
