Help spread the word about pediatric cancer and neuroblastoma.
Many don't know what neuroblastoma is until a family member is diagnosed. Pediatric cancer takes 7 lives a day on average. That is big!
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month!
A great way to spread awareness is to let people know about it! Social media is a great way to share facts about "Going Gold". You can wear gold, host a fundraiser, share facts, or encourage your community to "Go Gold" in September.
Have a bake sale or lemonade stand and donate the proceeds to cancer research!
Even small amounts add up and make a big difference.
Host a toy drive for the holidays!
Often smaller holidays get overlooked. We like to donate toys to our local children's hospitals for Valentine's Day especially! Your local children's hospital probably even has a wish list for donations! Check their website!
Donate to the Ronald McDonald house!
Many families of pediatric cancer patients are away from home. They stay at places like the Ronald McDonald house when they are away from home.
Write cheer up cards for kids in the hospital.
Check with your local children's hospital on what they will accept but you can brighten a day with a card or some stickers!
Start a club at your school!
You can meet up monthly and come up with ideas of your own to help in the pediatric cancer world! Fundraisers, card writing parties, holiday parties, visits to the hospital, you can do all kinds of things!
Contact your local representatives and ask them to support pediatric cancer legislation!
