Tonight, the CN Tower will be lit gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
The month of September is a time to recognize the children and families affected by childhood cancers and to emphasize the importance of supporting research on these devastating conditions.
Fact: More children die from brain cancer more than any other childhood cancer.
Previously, leukemia was the leading pediatric cancer killer, but it is now second. Unfortunately, brain cancers remain one of the most lethal and underfunded types of cancer. I hope that by raising awareness through my author’s platform, we can change this. With greating funding, education, and advocacy, it is possible to improve research in pediatric brain cancer and thereby improving the survival rates.
Join us today to honour all the families affected by childhood cancer and consider making a donation to support brain tumour research by checking out my fundraising page here. If you would like to learn more about brain tumours and glioblastoma, check out my novel, ‘Hold on please, Emily,’ to walk through a journey of a brain cancer patient. Together, we can #EndBrainTumours.
