2021 Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month

In the U.S., 15,780 children under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer every year.  We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all of us.  But for these families, they are fighting pediatric cancer AND COVID-19.  

The Fighting Children’s Cancer Foundation is again committed to be BOLD and be GOLD in the month of September.
