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.

Seany Newsflash Unleashed

The email blast service that we use to communicate with all the wonderful people on our newsletter list has advised us that we should inform our recipients that they need to set their spam settings to accept any mail coming from @aweber.com.  We’ll have to put this in the next broadcast but thought the blog might be a helpful way of getting the word out.

By the way, if you are reading this, and you haven’t signed up to receive our updates yet…well, there should soon be a sign up option on all our web pages.  Until then, please send your name and email address to [email protected] to make sure that you are up-to-date on all of our events.
