Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month around the world and is symbolized by a gold ribbon that represents how precious children are and the resiliency of childhood cancer heroes.
Every year during September, the goal is to come together to increase awareness of the devastating impact of childhood cancer on patients, their families including survivors, and act, to raise funds to support innovative research into finding smarter and safer treatments.
Here at Scintica, we want to help increase that awareness, via one of our passions: imaging technology. So, this month we will be highlighting examples where imaging had a transformative effect on both children’s hospital journey and on how doctors make decisions but also as its role in accelerating and guiding the delivery of promising new treatment from the lab to the children.
