New Monthly Cause!
The month of September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month, and we are so proud to partner with CureSearch to fund pediatric care research.
Every 20 check-ins during September will fund one minute of pediatric cancer care research through CureSearch. You can check them out at curesearch.org.
The hashtag this month is #togethercuringcancer.
CureSearch’s mission is to end childhood cancer by driving targeted and innovative research in an accelerated time frame. They strive to improve pediatric cancer treatment and cures so childhood cancer patients can lead long, healthy lives!
So remember to check-in this month to protect the future of children diagnosed with cancer!
