This year, nearly 16,000 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer. And many more will struggle with the debilitating effects of sickle cell disease, the most common inherited blood disorder. Our goal at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is to eliminate these diseases once and for all. But we can’t do it alone.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Sickle Cell Awareness Month. This month, we want the battle cries in the fight against pediatric cancers and blood disorders to ring throughout our community.
