It's time to revisit reader favorites from September! Last month was Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, which became our focus in the Charlotte Smarty Pants post below. Check it out - we hope you find an exciting way to get involved!
“The soul is healed by being with children.” – English Proverb
Cancer and kids: it’s hard to read those two words in the same sentence.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month, although for many parents and kids no specially designated month is necessary—they deal with this terrible disease every day. In fact, cancer is the number one cause of death by disease among children in the U.S.
This frightening statistic is why there are organizations working hard to eradicate cancer from kids’ lives. Here in Charlotte, a lot of good work is being done to help families, fund research and raise awareness. Here are a few. We hope you’ll take a minute to check them out and get involved.
