Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death from disease in children under the age of 15. While researchers at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and many other pediatric cancer centers are making great progress in the search for a cure, they need more funding to continue their work. So each September during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, CHOP rallies to increase visibility of pediatric cancer in our communities. Get involved by learning, joining, sharing, and speaking up for kids with cancer.
Join us at an event this September to participate in Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Your efforts can advance treatment options and change the future for the next generation of children diagnosed with cancer.
Our Patient Ambassadors are sharing their cancer experience through stories and videos. Learn how they're still the same funny, upbeat, caring kids, despite the challenges they face. Do you have a story of resilience to share? Post it on Facebook, Twitter, or anywhere else and tag it: #stillme.
