Join Us This September for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM) in the United States. It is a time to recognize, advocate for, and honor children that have been affected by cancer and the families that care for them, while highlighting the critical need to support research that can lead to safer and more effective treatments for our most vulnerable patients.

As brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer-related death in children, as well as the most commonly diagnosed cancer in children 14-years-old and younger, the brain tumor community has an enormous stake and voice in Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

During CCAM 2020, the National Brain Tumor Society seeks to bring the realities of this devastating diagnosis for children and families to the forefront. We will share important progress being made in the field, ask your help to raise critical resources to advance treatments focused research, and provide opportunities and online activities to help create change to last a lifetime. Make sure you visit our CCAM webpage for all ways to get involved.
