Date & time

The free event is to show support for children battling cancer, recognize those that are pediatric cancer survivors, and to honor loved ones affected by childhood cancers. In memory and recognition of those affected by pediatric cancer, the event will conclude with a release of gold balloons. Gold is the color that represents pediatric cancer.

In addition to the service-ending balloon release, the event will include speakers and a prayer service and remembrance ceremony. Families, caregivers, organizations and groups across the United States observe September as National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. 

 Join us outside the entrance of the Marshall Nemer Pavilion on the hospital campus.
