To win the battle, you have to know the facts.
Cancer persists as the leading cause of death by disease among children and adolescents in the United States, and most survivors will experience chronic side effects of varying degrees that result from existing treatments. Unfortunately, only four drugs have been approved to treat a pediatric cancer since 1980. Despite these facts, the general public doesn’t realize the magnitude of the problem of childhood cancers.
We hope to elevate childhood cancer awareness nationwide through educating people about childhood cancer.
The new CAC2 Gold Awareness Project is determined to turn the world gold in September. The Gold Awareness Project offers CAC2 members creative ways to promote gold and September and increase awareness of childhood cancer.
Members have the opportunity to weigh in on awareness issues related to childhood cancer and seek out collaborative opportunities.
