September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

We need more awareness:  pediatric cancer is the #1 reason our children die from disease (second only to accidents),  1 in 5 children diagnosed with cancer will die and 2/3 of those treated for cancer will suffer from long-term side effects of their treatment.

We need more research:  In 2011, the National Cancer Institute budget was $5.196 billion. Together, all childhood cancers received only 
3.7% of that.

We need more action:  what will YOU do to help?
