"Thank you for sharing this break down and chart,....simple but effective. I wish we could find some data like this in Canada! My girls do a lot of public speaking on behalf of our little heroes and quite often have to turn to American sites to…"
CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario will light up in Gold for the second year in a row in honour of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. My three teenage daughters got this off the ground; my youngest daughter Stephanie is a 3 time brain tumour survivor. Steph has been writing to the CN Tower and Niagara Falls since 2006 asking both locations to light in Gold. In 2011, both the CN Tower and the Falls came through!

My best to you, and welcome to PAC2. I cant seem to get your link working.
We are a community of parents, friends, survivors, medical professionals, childhood cancer organizations (CureSearch, Alex's Lemonade Stand, St. Baldrick's, Make-A-Wish and others) and concerned citizens, all with the same mission - eradicate Childhood Cancer.
We will grow, organize and plan, and take ACTION as one voice united against childhood cancer.
My first initiative was the Childhood Cancer Awareness Petition. The Petition was started before Stand Up 2 Cancer, and now has over 17,000 signatures with the objective to have a nationwide major media event bringing awareness to Childhood Cancer. To be childhood cancer's "Inconvenient Truth" moment.
The format is unique. You can have friends, post photos and videos, blog, participate in Forum discussions, start Groups about your interest, chat live with other members, promote fundraisers or join a Group that is focused on your interests in childhood cancer.
While all those features are nice, it still takes ACTION. This is truly the reason PAC2 started. Each day or so, we feature updates for members in the golden boxes on the home page. This is where you can help by taking action. You can get started with these ideas. We are currently planning for National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 2009, and exploring other ways to raise awareness on a nationwide and local basis.
I look forward to your contributions and ideas, and working together in the future. Thanks again for being here, I am sorry you have to be............AJs Dad
