September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Even if you haven’t been directly affected, you’ve probably been affected indirectly, whether by pediatric cancer or other cancers. Cancer shows no mercy. Cancer doesn’t give you a pass because you’re a child.
DID YOU KNOW THAT:
- 46 children are diagnosed with cancer each school day
- 7 children die from cancer each day
- Less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s annual budget goes to pediatric cancer research
- Less than 1% of every dollar the American Cancer Society raises goes to pediatric cancer research
