KINGSPORT — Every day in the United States, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer. These are children of all ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Cancer does not discriminate and in an instant it can turn your world upside down. Which is why one local program that works to bring a sense of normalcy to a child’s life is so important to the families in our region fighting these deadly diseases.

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, a time when people and businesses all across the country “Go Gold” to remember the kids and families fighting cancer. During an event on Thursday, Kingsport Mayor John Clark proclaimed Sept. 27 as Childhood Cancer Awareness Day in the city. More about the cancer event from our partners at the Kingsport Times News.
