At A Shelter for Cancer Families, we have had many children walk through our doors and into our hearts. They are just some of the roughly 15,870 children who will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States this year alone. We have celebrated with them, mourned with them, embraced them and supported them. So, September is an especially important month to us.
Throughout our Childhood Cancer Awareness Campaign, HEARTS OF GOLDweacknowledge and lift up those little hearts with the courage and resilience to fight a battle bigger than themselves. We also acknowledge and lift up the hearts of their loved ones who face the unknown with hope, grace and strength. To us, they are the true embodiment of HEARTS OF GOLD.
We ask your help in honoring the fighters among us, those who are no longer with us, and those who will battle cancer in the future. Together, we hope to “shine a light on childhood cancer”!
There are a variety of ways to join our HEARTS OF GOLD campaign throughout September.
