President Barack Obama
National Childhood Cancer Month
Ribbons send a clear message without saying a single word, which allows them to transcend language barriers and have far-reaching global impacts.
The international awareness symbol for Childhood Cancer is the gold ribbon. Unlike other cancer awareness ribbons, which focus on a singular type of cancer, the gold ribbon is a symbol for all forms of cancer affecting children and adolescents.
CANCER is the #1 cause of death among children in the world.
Help Spread Awarness-Grow the Gold
The ACCO motto “Go Gold®” was adopted by MFCF as a program in 2017 to describe multiple opportunities for children, families, corporations, and schools to help spread awareness about childhood cancer. There are many ways you can personally support our cause and/or encourage your family, school, or workplace to get involved and join in the fight to beat childhood cancer:
Organize a GO GOLD for Kids with Cancer Event®: each event raises crucial funds to provide information and support materials for children currently fighting cancer. These events also help spread awareness about current childhood cancer issues while creating supportive communities for local families who are dealing with the medical, emotional, and financial consequences of childhood cancer.
Help facilitate the development of a Corporate Partnership to increase the number of products that display the Gold Ribbon (see Become a Partner**hyperlink)
