September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month: Go for the Gold

goldribbonAs part of CKN’s commitment to raising awareness about Childhood Cancer, we invited various organizations to join our “Childhood Cancer: Go for the Gold” campaign.  We feel the time has come to join together and unite in the effort to increase public knowledge about childhood cancer through the Gold Ribbon Symbol and September: Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Please join us as we come together to give a voice to the children who are silently fighting this deadly disease.  Like us on Facebook so you receive our powerful line-up of articles this month – and please share them with your contacts to spread the word.

 

Today’s Feature:  Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation

 

Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the treatment, quality of life and the long term outlook for children with brain and spinal cord tumors through research, support, education, and advocacy to families and survivors. CBTF was founded in 1988 by dedicated parents, physicians and friends.

CBTF offers a wide range of support services for families, survivors and bereaved families. The Family 2 Family mentoring program matches newly diagnosed families with caregivers, survivors, or bereaved families.

Family activities include the Kid’s Cruise, Big Apple Circus and annual holiday parties along with other events and opportunities throughout the year to connect families and survivors.

CBTF offers camps at Happiness is Camping in Hardwick, New Jersey: a Family Camp, and the Just Us: Dad and Survivor Camp.  CBTF also holds The Heads Up Conference for teens and young adult survivors at Camp Mak-a-Dream in Gold Creek, Montana.

Hospitals and individuals can request complimentary educational materials.

Please visit our website (www.cbtf.org) for details on any of our programs and events or email info@cbtf.org for any inquires or to speak with one of our social workers.
