September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 

Cancer doesn’t fight fair at any age, but perhaps no cancer is more emotionally devastating than those that occur in children. In the United States, cancer kills more children than any other disease; more than asthma, AIDS, congenital anomalies, cystic fibrosis, and diabetes combined. Parents need information, support and, most of all, hope. The fear and uncertainty these young patients and their families face can hardly be measured, but the Society is deeply committed to finding new answers that will benefit every child with cancer and their family. 

The American Cancer Society has developed these documents for you to learn more. #baldwinproud
