Sinn Féín’s Conor Murphy, Megan Fearon and Mickey Brady are encouraging people to get their hands on a gold ribbon this September to help raise awareness of the impact of cancer on children and their families during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. clic1Thousands of families deal with the devastating impact of a cancer diagnosis and its treatment every month. Treatment for children is often gruelling and can start immediately, last as long as three years and take place many miles from home. CLIC Sargent, a leading charity supporting children and young people with cancer, provide clinical, practical and emotional support to help them and their families cope with cancer and get the most out of life. Lorraine Clifton, CLIC Chief Executive, said, “We’re so pleased Sinn Féin elected representatives in the Newry and Armagh area will be wearing a gold ribbon and supporting Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. “Every month, thousands of children and their families have to cope with the devastating impact of a cancer diagnosis. Cancer treatment for children is often gruelling and can start immediately, last as long as three years and take place many miles from home. She added, “CLIC Sargent is here to provide vital practical, emotional and financial support from diagnosis onwards. Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is a great opportunity for everyone to show they are standing by children with cancer.”
