Childhood Cancer Awareness Month



September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, a time to honor and remember children and families affected by these rare diseases, and help rally support to give kids with cancer better outcomes by supporting our groundbreaking research.


During the month of September:

  • 25,000 families around the world will get the horrible news that their child or teen has cancer.
  • 6,667 families will experience the loss of a child.

More children are being diagnosed with cancer today than ever before. Let’s change that.


Spread the word on social media with #GoGold

The average person has about 156 Facebook friends. If each of Children’s Cancer Research Fund’s Facebook followers shared a childhood cancer statistic, fact or story, over 9 million people could learn about this devastating disease.

Help us spread the word by sharing a statistic, story, or photo on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram and tag us using @ChildrensCancer and the hashtag, #GoGold.
