Childhood Cancer Awareness

Sep 3, 2020 | Article | 0 comments

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.  Childhood cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease for children under the age of 14 with at least 400,000 children being diagnosed with cancer around the world each year.  The World Health Organization is aiming to cure at least 60% of children with six of the most common cancers by 2030, and Catalyst is proud to support these efforts. Will you join us in the fight against Childhood Cancer? Take a look at some way you can help below or visit to learn more.
