on September 14, 2017

Students and staff in all M-W buildings will don gold attire and GO GOLD on Friday, September 15 to help raise awareness of pediatric cancer and lift up families and friends who have been impacted by these diseases.

According to the National Cancer Institute, although cancer in children is rare, it is the leading cause of death by disease past infancy among children in the United States. In 2017, it is estimated that 15,270 children and adolescents ages 0 to 19 years will be diagnosed with cancer and 1,790 will die of the disease in the United States. Among children ages 0 to 14 years, it is estimated that 10,270 will be diagnosed with cancer and 1,190 will die of the disease in 2017.
