On Sunday, September 9th, ASK and Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam honored thirteen of our brave patients and survivors with the help of WRIC's Morgan Dean at our Kourageous Kids Party at the Children's Museum of Richmond.
Our Kourageous Kids represent the more than 100 children currently on treatment in Central Virginia and the 500+ survivors in our community. Governor Northam also issued a proclamation declaring September as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in Virginia.
"I think that we can always provide hope for children..for their families," shared Governor Northam. "And I remind people that if you take away one's hope you take away their will to live."
The Kourageous Kids exhibit is one way ASK is working to raise awareness about childhood cancer in our community. To see the exhibit, visit CMOR this week. Next week the exhibit moves to the atrium at The James Center until October 1st, then it will move to the Children’s Hospital of Richmond Pavilion until October 12th.
