September is International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and its signature colour is gold. Today, in partnership with Kidscan Charity, GJD staff are wearing gold to show our support, as well as increase awareness and raise money to help find safe new treatments for children diagnosed with cancer.
Children's Cancer Awareness Month is dedicated to raising awareness of the issues surrounding childhood cancer and the harsh treatments often used to battle the disease. 1 in 500 children will be diagnosed with cancer, of those who survive 60% will suffer side effects of the treatments used to save their lives.
Mark Tibbenham, GJD’s Managing Director commented: “We are very proud that GJD has been able to take part in Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. It has been great to see the effort made by GJD staff to help raise awareness and funds. All of the money raised will go to Kidscan Charity to help find safer treatments for children with cancer”.
Cancer is the leading cause of death of children in the UK. Kidscan is one of the only charities in the UK solely dedicated to combating children's cancer.
