A group of parents whose families have been affected by childhood cancer are on a mission to get the world “Glowing Gold” to raise the profile of childhood cancer.

The parents group aims to raise awareness throughout September (Childhood Cancer Awareness Month).

 

Contacting iconic buildings both throughout the UK and abroad, the group are asking those that are able to “Glow Gold” for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month on September 1st and, where possible, the duration of the month.

When explaining the reasoning behind the campaign the parents say “without improved awareness and increased publicity, little will change in terms of early diagnosis, research, treatment or prognosis for our children”.

Whilst established by the parent group the campaign has the backing of a number of childhood cancer charities including Candlelighters, Clic Sargent and CCLG.

If you would like to help the group with their efforts then please get in touch with Emma Barron by email at emmabarron1@doctors.org.uk
