#CUREKids Twitter Chat

As we all know by now, September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and as the month comes to a close, it is our hope that this is not where the awareness for this terrible disease ends too.

To celebrate all that has been accomplished this month by childhood cancer advocates and families that have been affected by the disease, and to keep the momentum alive, CURE Childhood Cancer is hosting a Twitter chat this Tuesday, September 28th, 2010 at 11:00 am EST to get everyone talking & raising awareness for the cause. Everyone is invited to participate in the chat – from families to friends, other organizations & healthcare providers, or anyone interested in the cause!

Joining in the chat is easy if you’re on Twitter, and you can follow along with us by searching the #CUREKids hashtag here, and join in the conversation by simply following along and adding #CUREKids to your tweets. Also, be sure to Follow our Twitter account too at @CUREChildCancer!

As we chat, the conversation will wrap around the following questions:
Q1. Why do you support childhood cancer awareness? What has led you to become involved in this cause?

Q2. There are many charities out there, like CURE Childhood Cancer, that support childhood cancer causes. What is your number one reason for choosing which cause to support?

Q3. What is the best way for friends & families to show their support for a child & family dealing with childhood cancer?

Q4. September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. What have you done already this month to spread awareness?

Q5. Are you blogging about childhood cancer in some way? How are you sharing your story?

We also welcome your support through donations to help fund childhood cancer research this month, and appreciate you taking the time to read about the brave children we are honoring this month as CURE’s Kids Conquer Cancer One Day at a Time!
