Childhood cancer does not discriminate when it comes to race, ethnicity, geographic region or economic class. And childhood cancer is the leading cause of death in children 15 and under. One in every 330 children will be diagnosed with cancer before they are 20 years old and when it comes to government support less than 5% of cancer research funding goes to cancer research.
This weekend you can be part of the solution in helping care for children with cancer in the Greater Richmond community.
This Friday through Sunday there will be Anthem LemonAid stands throughout the Greater Richmond area. Volunteers have set up stands to raise money to help combat pediatric cancer and every dollar raised goes towards to Hematology and Oncology Clinic at our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital,The Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU.
LemonAid stands will be located in Kroger, Panera Bread, Walmart, Chesterfield Towne Center and Farm Fresh in addition to the many independent volunteer stands around the area.
