September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we're going GOLD with the Team Evelyn Foundation to spread some sweetness to the oncology unit at Alberta Children's Hospital. For each Go Gold CandyGram you purchase, we are giving one Regular CandyGram to a bed in the oncology unit at Alberta Children's Hospital. We want to give one CandyGram to all 21 beds and help make a very difficult time a little bit sweeter!
Each CandyGram includes a selection of our favourite gold and yellow candies, including some Lemonade Stars and other treats from our Gourmet Collection.
Some facts about Childhood Cancer
- Childhood cancer is the #1 cause of death by disease of Canadian children.
- About one in five children will not survive their diagnosis and the death rate increases beyond five years.
- Of those who do survive, 95% will live with a chronic health problem by the time they are 45 years old.
