September: Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Jade Sarna | Sep 05, 2016
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month – a time to increase awareness of childhood cancer and the devastating impact of this disease on children and their families, and to recognise the dedication of health care professionals and researchers who are caring for these children or searching for a cure.
In Australia, more than 1,000 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer each year and tragically, one in seven die as a result.
ANZCHOG run national and international trials at Australasian paediatric cancer centres to help improve outcomes and increase the quality of life for children with cancer.
