Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

  • September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
  • The goal each September is to increase awareness and raise funds for those affected by childhood cancer.
  • The American Childhood Cancer Organization encourages everyone to Go Gold® during September in honor and in memory of kids with cancer!
  • Each year it is estimated that more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with cancer.
  • Approximately 1 in every 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer before their 30th birthday.
  • And globally there are more than 300,000 children diagnosed with cancer each year.
  • September is a great time to have a fundraiser. Really, any time of the year is a great time… Choose from the American Childhood Cancer Organization’s two signature events or create your own fundraiser! Click here for more information!
