FILOTIMO KIDS CLUB
We are thrilled to introduce FILOTIMO KIDS!
With a focus on educating our future leaders and ambassadors and of course, celebrating our young brave warriors, FILOTIMO KIDS is also a platform for families of children who are fighting cancer, to talk to our amazing Rangers, Navigators and Professional Experts to gain insight and support into the journey ahead.
Our goal is to increase awareness and raise funds for those affected by childhood cancer. The Filotimo Kids Club encourages everyone to Go Gold during September in honour and in memory of kids with cancer!
“DOING WHAT WE DO IN THE SPIRIT OF FILOTIMO”
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM) is recognized every September by childhood cancer organizations around the world... a time to recognize the children and families affected by childhood cancers and to emphasize the importance of supporting research on these devastating conditions.
It is symbolised by a gold ribbon, worn to commemorate the event. Why is gold used for childhood cancer? The colour gold symbolizes how precious children are and the resiliency of childhood cancer heroes. Unlike other awareness ribbons that symbolize one specific disease, the childhood cancer ribbon stands for dozens of childhood cancer types.
With a goal to increase awareness and raise funds for those affected by childhood cancer, the Filotimo Kids Club encourages everyone to Go Gold during September in honour and in memory of kids with cancer!
In September, and throughout the year, we honour the children currently battling cancer, the families who love them, the clinicians and other caregivers treating them, the survivors of childhood cancer, the children who lost their lives to childhood cancer, and the researchers working to conquer childhood cancer.
Public awareness of the warning signs of childhood cancer is vital. Currently, between 800 to a
1 000 SA children are diagnosed with cancer annually. However, it’s estimated that half of the children with cancer in South Africa, are never diagnosed.
We are proud to be associated with the Cancer Association of South Africa [CANSA] and together our aim is to raise awareness about Childhood Cancer, its warning signs and symptoms and to educate our youth about Cancer as early detection is absolute key for treatment outcomes!
CANSA’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Programme is aimed at educating the public on the early warning signs.
Help us to continue to do what we do... in the spirit of Filotimo by donating to our cause 🎗so we can support our children’s partnered institutions and our Filotimo Kids Club.
