In 2021, ACCO obtained 45 State Proclamations. Our goal is to get all 50 states.
Childhood cancer remains the number one cause of death by disease for children in the U.S. and around the world. In just a few months, we will honor all of these brave individuals as we raise awareness during September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Together with many committed advocates and grassroots organizations, we humbly ask for your help contacting the governor’s office in your state. ACCO, as a national organization, has contacted your state and they are looking forward to issuing the proclamation. However, many times the request has to come from a resident.
It is more important than ever to use our voices and raise awareness for childhood cancer!
