SEPTEMBER IS PEDIATRIC CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

Each year, pediatric cancer interrupts the childhood and limits the potential of thousands of young Americans, said Public Affairs Director Julia Benitez Sullivan, who read the proclamation.

"It's estimated that almost 16,000 of our daughters and sons under the age of 20 will be diagnosed with cancer just this year," Sullivan said. "Cancer remains the leading cause of disease-related death for children."

Critical research has led to real progress in the fight against pediatric cancer. Improvements in treatment and increased participation in clinical trials have helped decrease mortality rates for many types of childhood cancer by more than 50 percent over the past 30 years.

Hidalgo County supports pediatric cancer awareness and encourages all county residents to join in national observances and in reaffirming our commitment to fighting childhood cancer.
