going gold for childhood cancer awareness
Every year, nearly 16,000 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer. September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month. During the month, organizations across the country put a spotlight on the types of cancer that largely affect childrenand more importantlyhelp to raise funds for research and family support.
 
Since its inception in 1983, Phoenix Children's Hospital (PCH) has become the sixth largest children's hospital in the nation. It is the largest provider of pediatric healthcare services to children in Arizona, operating under the values of family-centered care, service, communication, collaboration and leadership. PCH has partnered with numerous organizations in the Valley to provide patients with the support they need and deserve as they fight for their lives.
 
Gold is the national color for childhood cancer awareness and it is bringing a new sense of optimism and awareness to families affected by the disease. So PCH is 'Going Gold' in September and has set a goal to raise $1 million to benefit its Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, all with a goal of helping fund valuable research to battle the disease.
