September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

We can do more for kids with cancer

When a child is going through cancer treatment, they have a lot of hard days. They face long hospital stays, treatments that last months or even years, too many medications to count, uncertainty about the future… but they still show us everything they can do.

They can play.

They can dream.

They can create.

While these kids focus on what they can do, this Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we’re asking you to join us in showing what we can do for them. We can make treatment for childhood cancer easier – and you can help.

Show your support for kids fighting cancer - and everything they can do.
