September is Childhood Cancer and Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. As we do every year, My Forever Child is making a donation to Cure Search and the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance from our September sales.

This year we are also making a donation to the Layla Grace Foundation. This is a little girl who passed away 6 months ago at 2 years old from neuroblastoma. Her story, pictures, and videos shatter my heart to pieces and brings to reality what a devastation childhood cancer is on the child and the family. But in her short time on earth, Layla Grace made a big impact on the world and her parents and supporters are continuing on her legacy with her foundation. Here is their mission statement.

The Layla Grace Children’s Cancer Research Foundation exists to:

~Find new treatments for childhood cancers with the lowest survival rates.
~Spread awareness about childhood cancer.
~Touch the lives of children in treatment.

Please visit one of these great organizations above for more information, to spread awareness and to make your own donations.

We are giving away two charms for awareness of these devastating cancers. They feature sterling silver support ribbons and message beads with gold color crystal for children's cancer and teal color crystal for ovarian cancer. The charms have our Zipper Pull-Lanyard Clip attachment so it can be worn on a bag, backpack, jacket or keychain.
