Today is September 1st, the 1st day of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Why should you care? Why should you #gogold for the kids this month? Because 46 kids in America will be diagnosed with cancer today. 7 will die from cancer today. These kids could be your kids or kids you love...in your neighborhood, your school, your family. Yet childhood cancer research in America only receives 4% of all government cancer funding. Our kids deserve more, and we need to be their voice in the public and with the government.
What can you do? You can donate...Make A Wish, Children's Oncology Group, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital...You can walk in a 5K like the one coming up in San Diego on September 13th for the Jose Montano Foundaton. Register here: http://www.josemontanofoundation.org/
You can share facts, video, blog posts and website links with your friends and family.
