As you can imagine, cancer treatment is not a quick or easy process and can be particularly difficult for children with cancer and for their families. Children with cancer can spend anywhere from weeks to months at a time in the hospital, and they endure treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, and more.
Kid Nicholas Going Gold 4 Kids is a Founding Hope program of the American Childhood Cancer Organization that supports local families in New Jersey. In May of 2017, a bipartisan resolution sponsored by Senator Steve Oroho and Assemblyman Parker Space (both R-Sussex, Warren, Morris) was signed by Governor Chris Christie to promote education and awareness about childhood cancer. The resolution was inspired by Nicholas DaSilva, Kid Nicholas Going gold for Kids.
September is childhood cancer awareness month. The resolution designates the third week in September of each year as “Go Gold for Kids with Cancer Awareness Week.” Childhood Cancer is the leading cause of death from disease in American children under the age of 19. Schools will be encouraged to host appropriate activities and programs that promote a better understanding of childhood cancer. We would also like to encourage all public officials and the citizens of the state to join in wearing a gold ribbon, which is the international awareness symbol for childhood.
We respectfully request your help to mark your town’s calendar for the third week of September and to help us make childhood cancer awareness month as successful as possible by participating in awareness initiatives. By doing so, your town can help us give HOPE to even more children and families in NJ and allow us to continue having a positive impact in a child’s cancer battle!
