BCTV Encourages Community to “Go Gold” for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
As part of Berks Community Television’s on-going initiative to connect Berks County with valuable health & wellness information, BCTV will be sharing facts, statistics, and local resources & charities for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month throughout the month of September across multiple platforms.
According to the American Childhood Cancer Organization, 15,780 U.S. children between the ages of 0-19 years old are diagnosed with cancer every year, with 1 in 285 children being diagnosed with cancer before they turn 20. While the number of childhood cancer survivors is expected to increase, childhood cancer remains the number 1 cause of death among children in the United States.
“With a goal to increase awareness and raise funds for those affected by childhood cancer, the American Childhood Cancer Organization encourages everyone to Go Gold® during September in honor and in memory of kids with cancer!”
BCTV is launching new campaigns every month in 2022 to connect Berks County with information to promote healthy living. Monthly themes will be announced and promoted with messaging distributed across the media organization’s multiple platforms.
Follow BCTV on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and tune in to BCTV during the month of September for tips, statistics, and resources.
