September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

 
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. It is a difficult topic for those who have never experienced thinking about a child with cancer but for those parents who have a child going through this evil disease, research and treatment options are in their thoughts every minute of every day.

Take time to become educated on this topic during the month of September. There are Facebook pages devoted to children with cancer or you can google childhood cancer or childhood cancer research to find out what is currently being done to cure cancer in children. There are specific organizations that help with research and funding for individual types of cancer in children. Pediatric brain tumors, neuroblastoma, and leukemia are just a few types of childhood cancers.

If you know a child who is going through cancer treatment, give a special thought to them during the month of September. Research what you can do to help others become aware of cancer in children and find an organization that you can support with your donation of time or gift.

 If you have a specific organization you would like mentioned here this month, please feel free to email us so we can share the details. If you can recommend a book, a tip, or a comment to support parents and their children with cancer please feel free to mention it or email us and we will help to spread the word. We can move to find a cure if we all become more aware of childhood cancer this month and take action together.
