|Subject:||Designating September 2017 as "Childhood Cancer Awareness Month" in Pennsylvania|
|In the near future, I will introduce a resolution designating September 2017 as "Childhood Cancer Awareness Month" in Pennsylvania. This resolution will show our support in the ongoing fight children and their families face to beat cancer, and it will recognize the medical staff for their continued efforts to find a cure for pediatric cancer.
Even with the great medical advances over the last several decades, the American Cancer Society says cancer is still the second leading cause of death in children ages 1 to 14. Sadly, Pennsylvania is not immune to that statistic.
Children all across our state fight pediatric cancer every day with a courage and determination that inspires us all. I am proud to introduce this resolution to encourage children and their families in their battles and to commend their bravery and grit.
The resolution also thanks the medical professionals who dedicate their lives to healing, comforting and supporting Pennsylvania's pediatric cancer patients and families.
Please join me in cosponsoring this resolution to show our support for our family members, neighbors, friends and colleagues affected by pediatric cancer.
