So today, February 4th, is World Cancer Day. A day where organizations and individuals come together with a unified effort to raise awareness of all the various forms of cancer that wreak havoc across the world. As you all know, our focus here at the Action Jackson Justice League is on the vile foe that is childhood cancer (in all its terrible forms). While awareness has been increasing, overall focus and funding for pediatric cancer research and treatment is still shamefully low. Below is a very informative (and nicely designed) infographic that gives several key facts regarding childhood cancer. It was put together by Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (http://www.alexslemonade.org), which is a great organization that shares in our common battle.
So spread the word, and join the fight – Super Heroes Unite!
