Kids fighting cancer may be TINY but they sure are TOUGH!
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
September is childhood cancer awareness month. In the US, 7 children die from cancer or its treatment every single day. Another 43 will be diagnosed today. This is not acceptable! Often times, people think that kids cancer is “being handled” but sadly, only 4% of the National Cancer Institute Budget goes to pediatric cancers. Breakthroughs and advances are largely funded by private family foundations. Wearing GOLD this September can help to raise awareness for kids’ cancers and show support for those fighting! Can you imagine how great it is for a kid with cancer to see someone else wearing GOLD for them??
Where will the t-shirt sales proceeds go?
Did you know that some kids with cancer are ready to be discharged from the hospital but have to stay because insurance isn’t covering their necessary medical supplies? Simple things like antibiotics?!?! Or that some pediatric cancer patients don’t have coverage so have to stay in patient when it’s not medically necessary??
For Emmi’s 3rd Birthday, we want to help get these kids home for the holidays! It costs about $1500 to get the medical supplies needed for a childhood cancer patient to go home. Thanks to the generosity of so many, for her 2nd birthday, we collected $2,000. This year, our goal is $3,000 for her 3rd birthday! Please consider helping us get these kiddos home for the holidays in honor of Emmi’s Birthday!
Please consider purchasing a t-shirt (to help get these kids home) and wearing it (to bring awareness and show support)!
Please note that there are 2 shirt options:
$20 cotton available in 2t-6t
$30 performance available in Youth XS – Adult XXL. Be sure to chose adult or youth size accordingly.

Cancer attacks families. We want to be there for families so that they know that these kids are TINY BUT TOUGH! And so are we!
Thank you for helping us to GO GOLD this September and supporting families fighting childhood cancers!
