Get Involved with Camp Sunshine for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!
Cancer. It’s a battle too many children and teenagers face every day. Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease among U.S. children from birth to age 15. Each year, more than 16,000 new cases of childhood cancer are diagnosed.
Governor Nathan Deal signed a proclamation declaring September as Childhood Cancer Awareness month. The internationally recognized symbol of awareness for childhood cancer is a gold ribbon. Throughout the month of September, you can get involved by making donations, volunteering and by creating awareness. You could #GoGoldforCampSunshine on social media to show your support. You could create awareness by tying a gold ribbon on your mailbox, placing a gold wreath on your door, encouraging your workplace to get involved by raising donations with a casual day, or create gold products to serve or sell for the month!
