It’s that time of year – the holiday jingles, crackling fires, sweet reminders of love for family and friends, and the official scouting season for the perfect gift.
We also know this time of year is not free from the evil of childhood cancers. Thousands of families around the world will face the holidays with their child fighting cancer. Still others are left with only memories of their child’s past holidays and another 14,888 families in the month of December alone will hear the words "your child has cancer."
That’s why, at the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, every day, every month, and every cent matters in the fight against childhood cancers. And in the spirit of the season, what better gift is there than one that funds childhood cancer research?
We’ve compiled a list of our favorite gifts that give hope to children with cancer and their families:
Headbands of Hope was started by one girl who wanted to spread hope to all fighting cancer. For every headband purchased, one headband will go to a girl with cancer and $1 will be donated to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
