Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Every week more than three children are diagnosed with cancer in New Zealand.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month - an annual, international campaign aimed at increasing understanding of the impact childhood cancer has on young people and their families.
Each September organisations from around the world involved with childhood cancer support services, research or advocacy, and members of the general public, rally together to raise awareness and funding.
The internationally recognised symbol for childhood cancer is the gold ribbon. GOLD is the colour of strength, courage and resiliency and the symbolic colour of childhood cancer. During September, we encourage our supporters to wear a gold ribbon or add a gold ribbon to their Facebook profile.

During September we encourage supporters to GO GOLD and Give. Child Cancer Foundation is a unique family-focused nationwide network that gives personalised support to families affected by childhood cancer. Right now we are caring for over 500 families across New Zealand. We receive no direct government funding so rely on your generosity.
Our support is powered by you.
