September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September has been designated National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in an effort to draw attention to the victims of childhood cancer and the great work of the families and organizations who continue to fight the effects of this disease.

The Treasure Chest Foundation fills a unique role in this ongoing battle by providing toys, gifts and gift cards to approximately 12,500 young cancer patients each month in 51 hospitals and cancer treatment centers in 18 different states. Because each cancer patient typically visits the clinic multiple times per month, our services actually support young cancer patients upwards of 20,000 times a month.

The Treasure Chest Foundation’s vital services help bring joy to children and teens fighting cancer. Your contributions have continually made miracles happen for childhood cancer victims and enabled the Foundation to raise the hopes and dreams of these brave youngsters.
