September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!

Dear SIOP Europe Member,
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month: A time to recognise the children and adolescents affected by cancer at global and European scale.

During September, and throughout the year, we invite you to join us and honour children and young people with cancer, their families and caregivers, healthcare professionals, survivors, children who lost their lives, and scientists dedicated to beating childhood cancer.

By raising awareness during ‘Gold’ September – Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, you can make a real difference and help us create a brighter future for children and adolescents with cancer.

How can you support this year’s campaign?
We invite all SIOP Europe Members to engage:
European Parliament building will light up in Gold!
We are honoured that the European Parliament building in Brussels will be once again lit up in gold on 6 September 2022, bringing major visibility to the persistent burden of childhood cancer – an important signal that children and adolescents with cancer should remain an important priority on the EU agenda.
We extend our deepest gratitude to the European Parliament President Roberta Metsola for championing the institution’s endorsement of this year’s campaign.
