Kids Get Cancer Too Wristbands

Kids Cancer

At the lastĀ televised Stand Up to Cancer event, childhood cancer took the spotlight, and this was a first. In the US legislature, kid's cancer is also getting attention from some growing advocacy groups demanding more funding the leading cause of death by disease in America's children. The catchphrase "Kids Get Cancer Too" is getting more and more popular. Create your custom Kids Get Cancer Too wristbands for awareness, fundraising, and support.

Childhood Cancer Awareness Wristbands

September is childhood cancer awareness month, and several childhood cancer advocacy groups have events planned for the month. Another catchphrase made popular by this group is "46/7," representing the facts that 46 children are diagnosed with cancer in the US each day, and 7 die. You can create your own childhood cancer awareness bracelets using the online wristband builder at AmazingWristbands.com. Choose your color, style, font, artwork, and message.

The official color of childhood awareness is gold, making it a popular color for Kids Get Cancer Too wristbands. Other options are to do a bright colored wristband with gold lettering, or add metallic gold glitter to any color of wristband. Whatever you choose, these special awareness bracelets are an important part of advocating for the youngest victims of cancer.
