September: Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, begins on Sunday, so buckle up and get ready for an incredible ride with MHYH at your service.

MHYH will be focusing on survivorship during September and October as we have a kinship with survivors of childhood cancer as well as with the breast cancer community. This kinship is rooted in a risk for secondary breast cancer for those of us who received chest radiation and a risk of heart damage for those of us who received chest radiation with or without Doxorubicin [an anthracycline] for Breast Cancer.

A toast to everyone facing cancer or who has faced cancer, to securing less toxic cures, and to raising the cause of late effects: [clink your virtual glass filled w/ your beverage of choice]!

Here’s our schedule of events for September:

1) Interview with GivLive, The Giving Network which aired on 8/29, but remains available to you at your convenience <<ClickHere>>
