Welcome to
Mira's Movement


Today, and everyday this year, about 37 children
will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States.
The average age of a child at diagnosis is 6.
The most common diagnosis is leukemia.
The second most common is brain cancer.
The impact of the diease and its treatment on those children is tremendous.
Of those who survive, 60% will have life-long effects from their disease or treatment.
And, of course, many will not survive.

Please help us raise awareness of childhood cancer, and support families who are facing the biggest challenge of their lives.

PLEASE--wear your gold for the kids!
