EDINBURG, TX – Every 2 minutes a child is diagnosed with childhood cancer. Now the number one cause of death by disease in children five or older, childhood cancer is on the rise in the United States. To battle this devastating disease that affects more than 300,000 children worldwide each year, and increase awareness within our community, DHR Health (DHR) is participating in Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Throughout the month of September DHR will host events to support local children and families that have been affected by childhood cancer and to raise funds for children in the Rio Grande Valley who are currently battling the disease.
