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:  CURE Childhood Cancer Association

 

 

CURE Childhood Cancer Association was formed in Rochester, NY in 1976 by a group of parents who lost their children to cancer. They wanted to provide support to parents going through the same experience, as well as raise money for cancer research. Today, CURE is the only organization in Rochester focused solely on meeting the emotional, social, financial, and educational needs of children diagnosed with cancer and chronic blood disorders.

CURE Childhood Cancer Association is a nationally recognized innovator in peer to peer support for families with children diagnosed with cancer and blood disorders. CURE has a commitment to families and children from in and around the Rochester area who are facing the effects of childhood cancer.

Mission Statement:

“Improving the lives of children and their families coping with childhood cancer or chronic blood disorders by providing emotional, educational, social and financial assistance; promoting and funding research toward a cure.”
