Be Gold for Childhood Cancer

In the United States, cancer kills more children than any other disease. Nearly 16,000 children will be diagnosed this year, and one in five will not survive.

UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals invite you to Be Gold this September during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, with the goal of raising $1 million to support pediatric cancer research and treatment.

Just as pink has become synonymous with breast cancer awareness, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals are part of a nationwide campaign to shine a spotlight on childhood cancer with the color gold as its symbol.

You can help bring hope and healing to our courageous patients by supporting our partners. It’s as easy as buying a sandwich, getting your oil changed, seeing a movie, or working out.

At UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals, our world-renowned experts are leading the fight against pediatric cancer, from breakthrough research discoveries to patient-centered care.

“I’m proud that our hospitals are at the forefront of pediatric cancer research, developing innovative treatments and working toward cures,” says Dr. Michael Anderson, president of UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals. “We’ve come so far in the past few decades, but kids deserve more.”
