With cancer being the leading cause of death by disease among children in the U.S., this year’s event will benefit the pediatric cancer unit at Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel as well as the Providence Cancer Research Center. To honor the dedication of medical teams in this field, Governor Kitzhaber has issued an official proclamation designating July 27th as Children’s Cancer Awareness Day.
Although cure rates are increasing, close to 35 percent of children diagnosed with cancer will not survive and there has been an increase in cancer over the past 20 years. Doctors and scientists studying and identifying the causes and cures of childhood cancers need the public’s assistance to support advances in treatment. With this in mind, the Soulful Giving Foundation encourages you to come spread your blanket under the trees and help make a difference in the lives of children and those we love. “Come for the Concert, Stay for the Cause.”
