Also, something very important to announce for everyone. Did YOU know that
CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH?
Saturday, September 13th is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Day. Gold is the official color for Childhood Cancer. Here is a great way to show your support, these T-SHIRTS were designed by Heidi Randall, Jessica's mom. Jessica died from cancer last year in June, I'm sure many of you have seen her website, I have referenced it here several times. Heidi has been such a big part of Team Unite. If you are so inclined, take a look at the T-SHIRTS (they also have buttons and magnets) and WEAR ONE during the month of September to help get the word out there. P.S. Hannah's picture is one of the kids on the front.
So many great things are happening this month, this is from the Team Unite website:
I am awaiting some facts that will help us determine the next steps but for now it is time to focus on the press, with this news and the need for the major networks to do something HUGE this year for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. As many of you are aware, the major networks are teaming up and doing a “Stand up 2 Cancer” event September 5th . Let’s make sure that ABC, CBS and NBC are aware that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Let your voices and incredible stories of bravery be heard! We need a cure PRONTO so let’s ride the wave of this exciting news regarding S911 and get the press the children deserve. MORE AWARENESS = MORE RESEARCH $$$$$. Thank you to CURESEARCH for all you do to secure funding and move us toward a cure!
Please write to your local/national newspapers and TV New stations/programs asking them to do something to recognize September as Childhood Cancer Awareness month. And in addition, discuss the “Stand up 2 Cancer” event in your letters to ABC, CBS and NBC.
Thank you for what you are doing to support the kids!
Links for a few media outlets you may contact. Please send to any you feel would benefit our cause! We need to spread the news to get the recognition that children’s cancer deserves in September!
