National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

On Aug. 31, 2012, President Barack Obama proclaimed September as National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month as a means to help raise awareness to the ever-present battle against childhood cancers.

As we observe National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, please take a moment to join the AACR in this cause by joining our Pediatric Cancer Working Group, taking part in programming held throughout the year, and by learning how you can help to support the continued fight against childhood cancer.   

Read the Presidential Proclamation of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 2012.
