Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Champions from the Professional Sports, Entertainment and Video Gaming Communities #GoHead2Head to #CancelChildhoodCancer this September
ATLANTA, Aug. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Cancer is the leading cause of death from childhood illness in the United States, and of all cancer diagnoses in children under 15, brain tumors are both the deadliest and the most common. However, when it comes to investment in cancer research, childhood brain tumors and other childhood cancers remain in the background.
Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and champions from the professional sports, entertainment and video game communities will bring #GoHead2Head to #CancelChildhoodCancer in September. Learn more at www.curethekids.org/gohead2head.
Children with cancer deserve better. That’s why, in September, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is partnering with champions from the professional sports, entertainment and video game communities to #GoHead2Head #CancelChildhoodCancer.
Every September, PBTF and other leaders in the childhood cancer community come together in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to cancel #CancelChildhoodCancer. This year, PBTF partners will channel their competitive spirit to amplify this call for change. Instead of competing to see who can collect the most “likes”, participants will use #GoHead2Head each week to raise money for research tackling children’s brain cancer. And thanks to a special challenge match from The Sontag Foundation, supporters get the chance to double their impact.
The campaign officially kicks off on September 1, but you can get a head start today by registering at www.curethekids.org/gohead2head or emailing [email protected] for early access to the Child Cancer Awareness Lineup and Toolkit of the Month.
Individuals and families affected by a child’s brain tumor or other cancer diagnosis are also invited to attend Engaging in Advocacy: How to Amplify the Power of Your Story on August 26. Hosted by PBTF with support from the Coalition Against Childhood Cancer, this free webinar will share ways to advocate for #CancelChildhoodCancer through personal stories. Presenters for this webinar include Sarah Milberg, Director of Government Relations and Advocacy at St. Baldrick’s Foundation, Ginny McLean, Outreach and Communications Director for the Swifty Foundation, and Rene Marsh, CNN’s government regulation and transportation correspondent. Go to www.curethekids.org/webinar to register.
