MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay will be wearing a gold ribbon this September in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Thousands of families deal with the devastating impact of a cancer diagnosis and its treatment every month. Treatment for children is often gruelling and can start immediately, last as long as three years and take place many miles from home.
CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading charity supporting children and young people with cancer is asking elected representatives across the UK to join them in raising awareness of the impact of cancer during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Delighted at being asked to wear a gold ribbon in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Nick said:
“This campaign will help to raise awareness of the impact that childhood cancer has on families in Monmouthshire, which is why I’ll be urging everyone to wear a gold ribbon too.
“Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is a great opportunity for us all to show we are standing by and supporting children with cancer.”
