MURRAY-CALLOWAY COUNTY HOSPITAL RECOGNIZES SEPTEMBER AS PEDIATRIC CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Posted 09/07/2017


Pediatric Cancer AwarenessSeptember is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month and more than 10,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. Although rare, pediatric cancer is the leading disease related cause of death among children.  As we invest in cutting-edge research and work to advance medical treatments to beat childhood cancer, each of us can help carry our vision of a cancer-free future forward. Each September, we remember those who lost their lives to cancer far too young and honor the courageous children who bring unwavering strength and optimism to their fight against cancer every single day, and we refocus our efforts on striving to cure cancer once and for all.

Cancer affects children of all ages, generally without a known cause. Murray-Calloway County Hospital is helping create awareness on pediatric cancer by hosting an educational awareness event which will include a balloon release and cupcakes and lemonade as refreshments.

Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month – an educational awareness event and balloon release about pediatric cancer will be held:


Tuesday, September 19
4 pm
North Tower Lobby
