Kiwanis work to eliminate childhood cancer

February is Pacific Northwest Kiwanis Childhood Cancer Awareness month
Feb 18, 2013

Every year, thousands of children across America are diagnosed with cancer an often life threatening illness that remains the leading cause of death by disease for children under the age of 18.

The causes of pediatric cancer are still largely unknown, and though new discoveries are resulting in new treatments, this heartbreaking disease continues to scar families and communities in ways that may never fully heal.

The month of February is childhood cancer awareness month and we remember the young lives taken too soon, stand with the families facing childhood cancer today, and rededicate ourselves to combating this terrible illness.

While much remains to be done, Pacific Northwest Kiwanis has come far in the fight to understand, treat, and control childhood cancer.

The PNW Kiwanis Division 22 is proud to partner with Seattle Children’s Hospital in finding the cure for childhood cancer.  Seattle Children’s Hospital is at the forefront of pediatric medical research and the Research Institute is setting new standards in pediatric care and finding new cures for childhood disease

Researchers around the world continue to pioneer new therapies and explore the root causes of the disease, driving progress that could reveal cures or improved outcomes for patients. But despite the gains we have made, help still does not come soon enough for many of our sons and daughters, and too many families suffer pain and devastating loss.

Your donation will help eliminate childhood cancer.

Donations checks should be made out to The Kiwanis Club of Edmonds Charitable Foundation, designated for KCCP and mail to P.O. Box, 221, Edmonds, WA 98020.
