September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month— a time to increase pediatric cancer awareness, support families facing childhood cancer and inspire funding for research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and support. Every single day, approximately 44 children are diagnosed with cancer. 1 in 5 of those children does not reach the 5-year survival milestone. Despite these statistics, childhood cancer research funding pales in comparison to funding for adult cancers. It is crucial that we fund research for safer, more effective treatments for children. Let’s join together to make a difference for the kids who need it most.
