“Golden September” to advance research

Despite the progress of research, cancer affects around 2,200 children each year (from 0 to 17 years) and is responsible for nearly 500 deaths, the leading cause of death from disease in children over one year of age. This frightening disease is even scarier when it affects children. We are now able to cure 80% of these cancers, with more and more suitable treatments, but there is still more to be done. However, to combat pediatric cancers, prevention is essential, as are the means dedicated to research.

Golden September inspired by the “Gold in September” born in the United States in 2012, it tries to highlight the specificity of childhood and adolescent cancers in order to raise awareness and raise money for Advanced Search.
