5 Ways to Go Gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Go Gold for National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Each September, families, caregivers, charities and research groups around the world “Go Gold” to put a spotlight on the types of cancer that largely affect children and to raise awareness for childhood cancer research, treatment, patient support and survivorship issues.

The Gold Ribbon is the international awareness symbol of Childhood Cancer.  The color gold represents how precious children are and the resiliency of childhood cancer heroes.

At Mikey’s Way Foundation, we’re going gold to rally for all children who have fought or are fighting cancer.  You can join the movement, too!  Here are five ways you can go gold during September:

  1. Join us for CureFest 2017 at The National Mall in Washington, DC on September 16 and 17. CureFest’s goal is to make childhood cancer research a national priority by uniting the childhood cancer community, the general public, the medical community and our elected leaders.  The weekend has a family-friendly atmosphere and features a rally, candlelight vigil, games, activities and live entertainment. To learn more about CureFest, please visit curefestusa.org.
  2. Read our blog! Our Mikey’s Way blog contains inspirational stories, pediatric cancer research updates, and news from Mikey’s Way!
  3. Wear a gold ribbon in honor of childhood cancer survivors and to help raise awareness about childhood cancer.
  4. Follow Mikey’s Way on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
  5. Support Mikey’s legacy of helping kids cope with cancer by making a donation to Mikey’s Way Foundation.
