Sep 03, 2020 | Community Relations

Please join Lamar CISD in recognizing September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

At its August meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a resolution declaring September 2020 as “Childhood Cancer Awareness Month” in Lamar CISD.

Families, caregivers, charities, organizations and research groups across the United States observe September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Every year, approximately 16,000 children in the U.S. under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer; 1/4 of them will not survive the disease.

The objective of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is to put a spotlight on the types of cancer that largely affect children, survivorship issues and help raise funds for research and family support.
