September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and is symbolised by a gold ribbon, worn to commemorate the event. This is an annual international awareness month to raise support, funding and awareness of childhood cancers and the impact for sufferers and families!

Gold September 2022

Every year during September, our efforts will be focused on raising awareness about issues that childhood cancer patients, their families, and survivors face around the globe. This year we want to invite our community to show their commitment to our cause by inspiring and strengthening hope among our children.
Participating in this campaign is expressing solidarity, standing up and being a gift of hope!
