Not All Cancer Is Pink!

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and wearing gold/yellow is a good way to show your support. Over 40K young people undergo treatment annually in the US. 
It feels especially poignant that this year, in the midst of a pandemic, that we take time to acknowledge the smallest members of our hive who are dealing with cancer. They are the mightiest warriors of all!
Notable organizations like St. Judes, Ronald McDonald House and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation offer top notch care and support to families plagued by pediatric cancer. We have also found others that are not as well known that may be of interest. Those links are below for your exploration.
In our hive, we are compiling a list of positive quotes that our littlest warriors may find comfort in hearing while creating our upcoming holiday line of childhood awareness merchandise. Please leave your suggestions and positive vibes in the comments.
Remember our motto…”No One in our Hive Fights Alone”! is your source for cancer awareness merchandise and a hive of friends who strive to donate to charities related to the mission of ending childhood cancer.
