Pulling For Our Little Heroes 2017
EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2017
Each year in the U.S. there are an estimated 15,780 children between the ages of birth and 19 years of age who are diagnosed with cancer. Approximately 1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer before their 20th birthday. Globally there are more than 300,000 children diagnosed with cancer each year. Every 3 minutes, somewhere in the world a family hears the devastating words that their child has been diagnosed with cancer. While survival rates for many types of childhood cancer have improved, for too many children, cancer will shorten their lives too soon. Cancer remains the most common cause of death by disease for children in America. - from www.acco.org
For the 5th year in a row on September 8-9, we will come together as a community and support this cause through a foundation that helps local families with little ones in the fight- Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation.
