It’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

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.
