National Children's Cancer Society

National Children's Cancer Society

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and you can make a difference.

Wear a gold ribbon on your lapel. The gold ribbon is the official color of children with cancer worldwide and is supported, recognized and promoted by hundreds of organizations and treatment centers, families, friends and caregivers.

Consider asking your child’s school to recognize this month.

Contact your local library and ask them to feature books about childhood cancer during September.

Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper that informs readers about childhood cancer.

Ask your employer or co-workers to recognize childhood cancer awareness month by wearing a gold ribbon during September or sponsor a “dress down” day, with the proceeds benefiting a specific child or the N.C.C.S.

Write your elected officials about the need for increased funding for childhood cancer programs and research

That's a great idea Leslie! I need to stop by Michaels tomorrow anyway. I'll get some gold ribbon too. See you in the morning!
