Starting a Movement
The American people have rallied behind many important causes over the years and have created significant, positive change. The civil rights movement, the women’s rights movement, the environmental movement, the breast cancer movement are just a few examples. One movement that has been noticeably missing is the childhood cancer movement. In all of history there has never been a national movement for children facing the number one disease killer of young people ages 1 – 19.
In order to spark a national movement, AWOCCF has launched numerous successful events and campaigns designed to unify the childhood cancer community and engage the general public.
The goal is to educate and inspire the general public so that there is a groundswell of support for children with cancer. This awareness, education and engagement will lead to more funding for research and to less toxic and more effective treatments for childhood cancer.
