September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
September’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is a time to shine the light on the realities of childhood cancer, emphasize the importance of life-saving research, and join together to make a difference for children diagnosed. The situation is urgent – incidence rates are rising, and cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease for children. That’s why CURE invests millions in critical research that will lead to safer and more effective cures for kids, and there are many ways you can help this month.
Every day in September we share inspirational stories of beautiful children whose families have joined with us to make a difference. You can read, share, and become a part of their efforts through CURE’s Kids Conquer Cancer One Day at a Time. You can start a Facebook Fundraiser for CURE, or proudly wear our September t-shirt. Every little action taken helps us Save Childhood Dreams. Your purchase of a gold mailbox bow combined with others who do the same will fund genetic testing for 37 children with relapsed cancer, or help 187 families facing financial crisis with rent, mortgage, or hospital bills.
Together we can make sure that kids fighting cancer can realize their dreams!
