The start of September is often a time of excitement when 'back to school' time arrives.
Sadly, there will be many children this September who will not be returning to school with their friends, either because they are undergoing treatment or if they have sadly passed away.
In the UK, a child or young person is diagnosed with cancer every two hours. Survival rates of childhood cancer are improving, but there is still a long way to go.
This September, we would love you to help join us and raise awareness of childhood cancer.
All funds raised from this project will be used in the fight against childhood cancer which is sadly the biggest nonaccidental cause of death of children in the UK.
Could you dedicate a ribbon to a child that has fought or who is fighting cancer or sadly to a child who has sadly passed away?
If you do not know a child that has been affected but would like to help, why not buy a ribbon and dedicate it to a child you know that is not affected or simply to “help raise awareness.”
The ribbon can be any colour of your choice, but if you cannot decide, why not make it gold? It would be wonderful if we can turn our heart gold at the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust during childhood cancer awareness month.
We would also love it if you could share some of our posts on social media to help raise awareness of childhood cancer awareness month.
By working together, we can achieve so much more in the fight against childhood cancer.
