for patients
Being diagnosed with cancer can be overwhelming. Learning about your cancer, its treatment and ways to effectively deal with what is happening will prepare you for the challenges ahead.

for friends and community
What can you do to help a family affected by childhood cancer? Friends, teachers coaches, neighbors and others can help to ease the burden.

What a great thing you all are doing!!

We would like you to visit and consider joining the People Against Childhood Cancer community. We are a network of over 900 parents, friends, family, concerned citizens and childhood cancer organizations (CureSearch, Alex's Lemonade Stand and more) whose sole mission is to present a unified voice to raise awareness of childhood cancer. The website format is unique, you can have friends, post photos and videos, blog, participate in Forum discussions, start or join Groups that interest you, chat live with other members, and promote or learn about fundraisers. It's free, interactive and will continue to evolve.

While these features are nice, our focus is action to raise awareness of childhood cancer. One initiative is the Petition To Cure Childhood Cancer. It has over 16,000 signatures and will be used to hopefully leverage a network TV special solely on childhood cancer or a similar high profile project. Other ideas and action items are presented daily in our ongoing effort to raise awareness.

Please visit and join us at http://curechildhoodcancer.ning.com.
