The Gold Ribbon the symbol for childhood cancer



 

The Childhood Cancer Gold Ribbon has become the unifying symbol for childhood cancer awareness, symbolizing the precious nature of all children and the golden flame of hope that burns brightly for childhood cancer patients, survivors, families and caregivers. As a mother of one young patient said, "Our children are our gold..and we should honor them."

The Childhood Cancer Gold Ribbon was created by Gigi Thorsen in 1997, in honor of her daughter, Kelsey (1989-1996). The Childhood Cancer Gold Ribbon has become the unifying emblem for all who are dedicated to advancing research, comprehensive treatment, advocacy, emotional and supportive care and follow up to benefit children and adolescents with cancer and their families.
