(Madera, CA) – Every day in the United States, approximately 43 children receive the news that they have cancer. For these young patients, the diagnosis is only the first step in a long and harrowing journey that often lasts a lifetime.
To educate our communities about the deep and lasting impact cancer can have on a child, Valley Children’s recognizes September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Throughout the month, keep an eye out for educational messaging on Valley Children’s website and social media accounts. We will be sharing patient stories, statistics, innovative research and other information to help bring light to this devastating disease and what Valley Children’s team of specialists is doing to provide the best care to every child diagnosed with cancer.
