    Default September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

    CURE'S KIDS CONQUER CANCER
    ONE DAY AT A TIME!

    Celebrate September

    National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month


    September is recognized as National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This September, CURE Childhood Cancer has committed to raising awareness and raising money to help find a cure for childhood cancer in our lifetime and put an end to this terrible disease through a special program called CURE's Kids Conquer Cancer One Day at a Time!

    Did you know that cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S. today? While we are dedicated to fighting childhood cancer all year long, we are hopeful that by focusing on the children impacted by this devastating disease during the month of September, we can truly make a difference.

    Each day throughout the month of September, we will honor a special child in our CURE family who has been personally affected by childhood cancer. Some honored children are in the midst of their battles with cancer, some have conquered the disease, and some have lost the battle and will be specially remembered on their day.

    Because less than 2% of federal funding for cancer research is directed at solving cancers that impact our children, CURE is challenging our community to raise $1,000 each day throughout Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in honor and in memory of all of the children we serve. Our goal at month's end is to raise $30,000 to put towards the fight to end childhood cancer and, most importantly, to honor our brave warriors One Day at a Time!

    Please take a moment to honor and remember each of our featured children, knowing while you read their stories that they represent the 12,700 children with cancer diagnosed each year. Click to read their stories and consider supporting their fundraising efforts with your donation. You will receive an email each week in the month of September providing you updates on this initiative in furtherance of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

    If you wish to donate in support of our efforts this September to raise $30,000 for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month but do not wish to donate to a specific child, please see instructions on website to donate to CURE's general September Fund.

    Christi and Michael ..... Thanks for the bracelet. Sick children get my compassion and sympathy, where as adults we've created the majority of our own problems, maybe not all of them but nothing like children with cancer. Yet they remain positive and strong. Jesus holds each one of them in His arms breathing life into their bodies until they can do it on their own.

    This moment I lift up every child with illness and pain to the only loving God who can lay a healing on hand on them each one. I pray in Jesus name for their complete recovery. God bless.

    Michael's glad you guys appreciated them - he's very young to have to realize how serious this life can really be. There are a lot of times in my life that I won't remember for various reasons, including chemicals. My prayer is that God allows so many of Michael's memories of the last few years to simply fade away, at least with time.

    Thank you for that prayer, Robert, it was beautiful.
