Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Started in the US in September 1992, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month highlights the impact of cancer on children and their family and acknowledges the fight against cancer and cancer-related illnesses so many children face. The Golden Ribbon is it’s symbol.
The encouraging news is that, with the development of economy and medical conditions in some areas, survival rates of children with cancer keep on rising. However, the improvement is lagging in some less-developed countries.
Every year in September, at Make-A-Wish, we join this movement of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, hoping to bring more strength and courage to every child fighting cancer. And we can only achieve this with your support.
