For those who have been touched by childhood cancer and want to tell their story, the Cancer Center at CHOP has put together a Childhood Cancer Advocacy Toolkit. These tools make it simple to tell the world how childhood cancer has changed a child’s life, or your own, and communicate the need for pediatric cancer research funding.
