(KFVS) - Childhood cancers tend to be more aggressive than adult cancers, according to the ACCO. The most common childhood cancers include bone cancer, leukemia and brain cancer.
The ACCO promotes groups and individuals to contribute in raising funds for awareness. Schools can participate in PJammin for Kids with Cancer, where students can pay $1 to wear pajamas to school.
Businesses and organizations can participate in a Go Gold event, where participants incorporate gold, the symbol of childhood cancer. The ACCO provides gold ribbons and fliers to promote the organization's gold event, as well as free event planning consultations.
Individuals can also get involved by purchasing awareness kits to support and promote research.
