CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
More children are lost to pediatric cancer in the U.S. than any other disease. In fact, every year, more than 15,000 children receive a cancer diagnosis.
Pediatric cancer is a devastating disease, and there are many obstacles facing treatment for these children. Some of these obstacles include a critical lack of funding compared to adult research as well as the many legal and financial difficulties of academic cancer research progressing into actual clinical trials.
This is why Love Your Melon is dedicated to joining the story and making a difference in the lives of these children. We strive to spread awareness, support innovative research and provide direct support to families enduring treatment for pediatric cancer.
Thank you for supporting the fight against pediatric cancer and spreading awareness - in September and all year long! Together, we will continue making a difference in the lives of children battling cancer.
