We #GoGold in September for the little warriors. We #GoGold Because when it impacts the innocent lives of our children, it utterly breaks our hearts and makes us feel helpless. For those that have been affected, we’re with you. #FuckCancer
We appreciate everyone getting involved in this year’s #ChildhoodCancerAwareness campaign. Whether it’s picking up this years Limited Edition #GoGold Fxck Cancer merchandise, changing your profile image to a gold Fxck Cancer logo or grabbing your Dixxon Flannel Co. gold collaboration flannel, it matters and makes a difference. #TogetherWeFight
- Cancer is diagnosed each year in about 175,000 children ages 14 and under worldwide.
- About 420,000 childhood cancer survivors live in the U.S., with many more around the world.
- The most common cancer in children is leukemia, a type of blood cancer.
In the past 20 years, only 3 cancer medications have been specifically approved for kids and only 4% of federal government cancer research funding goes to study pediatric cancer.
