Encouraging Brave Children Battling Pediatric Cancer

Pediatric cancer remains the #1 diagnosis of children staying in our House.

In recognition of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville, along with our fellow community and hospital partners who are members of Home Team Jax, will be drumming up the hashtag #JaxGoesGold to highlight and bring awareness to the extraordinary ways our community supports children bravely battling cancer.

Here at RMHC Jacksonville, there are a few activities we have planned to celebrate and recognize the extraordinary bravery of our Cancer Warriors:

  • Bulletin board posted in our House with encouraging messages to children currently battling cancer
  • Highlighting our brave cancer warriors on social media under the hashtag #JaxGoesGold
  • Fight Like a Kid T-Shirts for Staff & Families
  • Cancer Ribbons posted in our House highlighting the names of children battling cancer
  • Yellow cancer ribbons for staff and families to show their support throughout the month
  • Yellow flowers will be planted during the month of September at our House’s entrance
  • A Yellow wreath will be placed on our front entry door
  • Volunteers & Staff will post encouraging photos and videos online using the hashtag #JaxGoesGold
  • Special recognition of Childhood Cancer Awareness in our monthly e-newsletter
