September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month #CCAM
The Drew Barker-Wright Charity, along with many other childhood cancer organisations, marks this time each year.
Paediatric chordoma affects 1 in 20 million. It is an ultra rare cancer which currently receives little funding due to its rarity. Drew’s Charity aims to change this situation by funding world-leading research in conjunction with The Chordoma Foundation.
Drew’s charity also aims to provide financial support for newly diagnosed children and their families, to help them through the initial shockwave of diagnosis. Along with Drew’s Gift, a present for the bedside of newly diagnosed children in treatment.
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is the perfect time to help us raise vital funds in Drew’s memory.
What can I do in September to help?
- Hold a coffee morning or cake sale. Be Bold. Go Gold. Decorate your cakes with gold icing and glitter.
- Arrange a gold themed charity event, such as a quiz night or bingo evening and raise awareness. Be Bold. Go Gold.
- Have a dress down day at work or school. Be Bold. Go Gold. Wear an item of gold or yellow clothing.
- Why not walk, run, swim, cycle. Get people to sponsor you. Be Bold. Go Gold. Wear an item of gold clothing to mark the month.
Whatever you decide to do to raise funds, please know that The Drew Barker-Wright Charity is run on a voluntary basis, so every penny you raise really does make a difference to the lives of children affected by Paediatric Chordoma.
