Petition: Light the White House Gold for Pediatric Cancer Fighters (Sign by 2/6/2013 for September!)

We petition to: Light the White House gold for the month of September 2013 to honor pediatric cancer fighters and bring light to the cause. Signatures needed by February 06, 2013 to reach goal of 25,000 http://wh.gov/PkGX

WHY? In the USA, the odds of developing cancer before age 20 are 1 in 300 for every single child you know. One in three children diagnosed with cancer will be killed by it, a secondary cancer or other long-term effects from the "cure" of cutting, burning and poisoning. Seven children who were diagnosed within the past five years died today. Five children who lived at least five years after diagnosis died today. Twelve (12) children were killed by childhood cancer today.


AND During 2000-2009, overall cancer incidence rates increased by 0.6% per year among children (they decreased by 0.6% per year among men, and were stable among women) http://www.cancer.gov/newscenter/newsfromnci/2013/ReportNationQA#que7
