September: National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

This month is as good as any to learn more about how you can help in the battle against pediatric cancer!  Here are a few tidbits of information taken from our fact page about childhood cancers:

Cancer kills more kids than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and muscular dystrophy COMBINED.

The incidence of childhood cancer increased 33% between 1975 and 2001.

Sarcomas are cancers of connective tissue (bone, muscle, fat, cartilage, some soft tissue).

There are over 50 types of pediatric sarcomas; they account for 20% of all pediatric cancers.

99% of all sarcomas occur in children.

To help make a difference in the lives of childhood battling cancer, please help us to spread the word.  Ask your friends, family, and co-workers to read our blog, subscribe to our newsletter, watch our videos, follow our tweets, attend our events, and/or donate online.  Do good; feel good.  Help us raise awareness this month and join us to celebrate your hard work on Sunday, October 11.
