Each September Childhood Cancer Awareness Month helps highlight the impact of cancer on young people and their family. This, in turn, helps us to protect more and more children and improve the lives of young cancer patients through our groundbreaking research. Every day at least 10 children and young people get the news they have cancer.
Locally, I applaud the continued efforts of Gillian Mowat who has campaigned tirelessly, in Inverclyde, to highlight childhood cancer.
I would encourage everyone to support the Glow Gold campaign and learn more about childhood cancer.
