MEDFORD, Ore. — This month is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. It is something more than 13,000 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with every year. One in five children diagnosed with cancer will die.
Childhood cancer survivors Chloe Staten and Manny Munoz were on Newswatch 12 Midday to share their experiences. Both have become advocates to help those fighting with cancer.
Munoz has started an organization called Gamerosity. Through the organization he raises funds to buy iPads for children with cancer.
This weekend the organization is holding an event called “Game on for Childhood Cancer.” The free event is happening from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. at U.S. Cellular in Medford.
