Get Involved

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Despite medical breakthroughs in treatment, cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease in children. That’s why gold is the official color for childhood cancer awareness – it symbolizes how precious children are and recognizes their courageous strength.  Friends of Karen is #AlwaysGold…Because the fight doesn't end until cancer is gone and we help children with cancer 365 days a year.
