The Capital Region Childhood Cancer Coalition was formed to unite the organizations and individuals in our area dedicated to childhood cancer. We want to raise awareness about childhood cancer and improve the experiences for children undergoing treatment. We hope to provide support to families while they are in the midst of this catastrophic illness.

By joining forces we will be able to streamline resources and make sure that there are not duplicative efforts. We are also able to fill any gaps that may exist in support for the families. In September we want to blanket our region with the gold ribbon pins representing our children, having events throughout the month in different areas of the capital region.

It's Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is childhood cancer awareness month. Janine Cammarata shares details about Nick's Run to be Healed 5K, which is September 29th at the Clifton Commons in Clifton Park.

Did you know...

that in the U.S., almost 13,000 children under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer every year; approximately 1/4 of them will not survive the disease. A diagnosis turns the lives of the entire family upside down. The objective of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is to put a spotlight on the types of cancer that largely affect children, survivorship issues, and - importantly - to help raise funds for research and family support.

Nick's Run to be Healed 5K 2013

Nick’s Run to be Healed is honoring Parker Ragone a 3 ½ year old boy from Clifton Park who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on October 25, 2011. He was 2. Parker is doing well and loves to be around the teens from Nick’s Round Table. He loves the Hulk because he likes to SMASH! Maybe the Hulk can smash some cancer cells!
