Texas Children’s Cancer Center, the largest pediatric cancer center in the nation, treating more children than any other cancer center annually, will celebrate national childhood cancer awareness month in September by “going gold.” Gold, the official symbolic color for childhood cancer, will be showcased throughout the month as part of hospital events, art installations and in the clinical setting.
“By the end of this year, it is estimated that over 15,700 children nationwide will be diagnosed with a form of pediatric cancer,” says Dr. David Poplack, Director of Texas Children’s Cancer Center. “Going gold is a way for us to honor the courageous journeys of the patients and families who have been touched by pediatric cancer and create awareness on a national level about the challenges these children face.”
