Childhood Cancer Awareness

In our continued effort to raise awareness and funds for cancer research and treatment, Soccer Kicks Cancer will partner with Children’s Oncology Group to focus our efforts on Childhood Cancer Awareness during the month of September.  Why Childhood Cancer?

  • Every year more than 15,000 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer in the United States and Canada.
  • Despite the progress, cancer remains the leading cause of death from disease in children
  • Even in children who survive, more than half will have a serious lifelong side-effect from their treatment

OUR GOAL IS TO FIND A BETTER CURE FOR EVERY CHILD WITH CANCER, NO MATTER HOW RARE…MAKE IT YOUR GOAL TOO!


Children's Oncology Group (COG)

The Children’s Oncology Group (COG) is the world’s largest organization devoted exclusively to childhood and adolescent cancer research. The COG unites more than 8,000 experts in childhood cancer at more than 200 leading children’s hospitals, universities, and cancer centers across North America, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe in the fight against childhood cancer.

Children’s Oncology Group’s Project:EveryChild is an initiative to find better cures for every type of childhood cancer, no matter how rare. All children with cancer cared for at COG’s more than 200 pediatric cancer programs will be able to participate in Project:EveryChild.
