For September, we “Go Gold.” September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and it is symbolized with a gold ribbon. The gold ribbon is worn to honor children in treatment, out of treatment, and those who have lost their lives to cancer.
Every day in the United States, 43 children are diagnosed with childhood cancer. (Alex’s Lemonade Stand)
About 10,470 children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2022. Childhood cancer rates have been rising slightly for the past few decades. (American Cancer Society)
Every year in the United States, approximately 1,800 children and adolescents still die of cancer. (National Cancer Institute)
When we consider global statistics, these numbers rise dramatically.
We “Go Gold” in September to remember, rally, and change these statistics for good. At The Super Jake Foundation, we believe in #morethan4
We ask you to join us in wearing a gold ribbon for the month of September and to donate to help fund the research that will ultimately lead to the cures for childhood cancers. #donatetoday #gogold
