September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and CURE is committed to raising awareness of childhood cancer through sharing the journeys of the brave children who fight this monster of a disease every day.
“CURE’s Kids Conquer Cancer One Day at a Time” is an initiative aimed at the goals of educating and empowering. Each day in September, CURE will highlight a very special child in our CURE family who has been affected by cancer. We will share their stories of diagnosis, treatment, courage. We will share stories of survivorship and loss. We will open and change hearts as we honor and remember our children.
We will also work together to raise money to fight back. With our help, each family participating will attempt to raise a minimum of $1,000. In September 2014, CURE’s Kids raised more than $247,000 – all of which was directed toward CURE’s 2014-2015 research initiative: specific research projects aimed at improving survival for difficult to cure pediatric cancers. What better way to give meaning to Childhood Cancer Awareness Month than to advance research for cures?
