Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 in the United States. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. During the month of September we will take time to honor and remember the children who have won and lost their battles with cancer. Cancer is a scary disease and a child’s diagnosis can be devastating.
Our goal this month is to provide you with resources to help you find the support you need during your child’s journey.
Children’s Cancer Research Fund is a wonderful resource to find information, support groups, survivor stories, and life after cancer and so much more.
American Childhood Cancer Organization’s (ACCO) mission is to help improve the lives of children living with cancer and their families. ACCO provides free books and resources to families of children with cancer, as well. Click here to find out more.
The comforting fact about a cancer diagnosis is that you are not alone. Contact your provider to find a support group or resources to help you and your family through this journey.
